140 students representing over 
forty cities in the states of Iowa, 
Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, Utah 
and California enrolled for the 
June 22-July 31 summer session 
at California Lutheran College. 
The record enrollment represent- 
ed a 150% increase over last 
summer's attendance during sum- 
mer session. A large number of 
California students attending 
summer session live in Thousand 
Oaks, Ventura, Camarillo, Ox- 
nard, Simi, and other nearby cit- 

The college admissions office

Organ description by 
Mr. A. A. Moorfield 


Columbia degree 

A graduate of Boston Univer- 
sity and Suomi Theological Semi- 
nary, he received his M.A. and 
Ed.D. from Western Reserve and 

Dr. Hillila's duties as Dean of 
California Lutheran College of- 
ficially began on September 1, 
1964. As college Dean he will as- 
sume academic leadership of the 
faculty by supervision, coordina- 
tion and direction of various edu- 
cational programs, curricula and 
instructional methods with strung 
stress on the continuance of pro* 
feesional and creative growth. 

The ASIS offers travel grants 
to students that greatly reduce 
the cost of a working summer in 
Europe. These grants can range 
as high as ei,000 depending on 
individual circumstances. Student 
applicants are also free to make 
their own travel arrangements to 
and from Europe. ASIS expects 
that a great many students par- 
ticipating in the charter flights 
sponsored by their school will 
want a summer job in Europe. 

The purpose of the ASIS aum- 
mei*job-in-Europe program is to I 
provide every college student I 
with the opportunity to see Eu- 
-itope, to increase his cultural 
Knowledge through travel and at 
the seme time to earn and save 
money. Students with limited 
budgets would not otherwise be 
able to see Europe. The student 
worker also has a golden oppoi^ 
tunity to acquire a speaking 
knowledge of a foreign language. 

Students interested in summei 
work in Europe for 1965 should 
write to Dept. I, American Student 
Information Service, 22 Avenue de 
la Liberie, Luxembourg City, 
Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, for 
the ASIS 36-page booklet which 
includes a complete listing and 
descriptions, with photographs, of 
jobs available and job and travel 
grant applications. Send $2 for the 
booklet which will be returned by 
air mail. 

A new, free standing pipe or- 
gan is the newest and perhaps 
the most outstanding addition to 
the music department of Califor- 
nia Lutheran College. The pur- 
chase of this organ was made 
possible by a generous gift of 
86,000 by Mr. and Mrs. G. Arthur 
Norlin. Mr. Norlin is Superinten- 
dent of Buildings and Grounds 
here at the college. 

Classic styling 

The organ is a classic- 
voiced, unit organ built along the 
lines of the instruments of the 
seventeenth and eighteenth cen- 
turies. An organ such as this is 
ideally suited, and, indeed, de- 
signed primarily to serve in the 
accompanying of congregational 
singing and liturgical worship; 
it is'aleo, designed to perform the 
vast body of Lutheran Church mu- 
sic written for the organ from the 
Reformation to the eighteenth cen- 
tury, being particularly well suit- 
ed to the performance of contra- 
puntal music. 

The instrument has five ranks 
of pipes with a sixth rank to be 
added in the future. Both the pipe 
work and the separate two-iriaTniaT ' 
cor sole are mounted on wheels 
for easy movement which is need- 
ed in our multi-purpose gymnasi- 
um-auditorium. The organ was de- 
signed by Mr. Moorfield working 
with the organ builders, Abbott 
and Sieker, of Los Angeles. 

Aesthetic addition 

The instrument will be uaei 
for chapel, for private instruction, 
and for concerts. (A small two- 
rank pipe organ for practice has 
also been ordered and will be in- 
stalled soon.) To an age accus- 
tomed to electronic substitutes, 
performances upon the pipe organ 
will add greatly to the aesthetic 
education of our college commit- 
nity. But of even greater value is 
its potential for leading the wop* 
ship of our Lord; leading it in the 
spirit of the great church organs 
bearing the inscription SOLIO

Tour-Learn Geography 


Most of the trees were growing at 
the time of the birth of Christ, 
while others were adults when the 
Egyptian pyramids were being 
built. The survival of these trees 

has permitted dendrochrono legists 
studying the tree growth rings to 
make accurate assessments of the 
climatic past. 

As part of their course work 
in Geography, eight California 
Lutheran College students spent 
a weekend traveling to Yosemite 
to inspect glaciation features in 
the granitic mass of the Sierra 
Nevada, and then to the White 
Mountains on the Californiti-Ne- 
ada border to see the ancient Bris- 
tlecone Pines. 

The group traveled through the 
San Joaquin Valley and the long 
level drive through the grape, rai- 
sin and cotton agricultural areas 
of central California. At Fresno, 
they climbed through the foothills 
and western slope of the Sierra 
Nevada, transversing the Lower 
Sonora, Upper Sonora, Transition 
and Canadian vegetation life 
zones, so that the climatic con- 
trasts could be appreciated by the 
Geography students. 

In Yosemite Valley the stu- 
dents viewed the huge redwoods in 
the famed Mariposa Grove and 
overlooked the dwarfed Yosemite 
Valley from an 8,000 foot vantage 
point while a park naturalist lec- 
tured them on the area's marvelous 
landscape made possible by gla-

uralist showed them the differ- 
ence between the Limber Pine 
and the {Btriarchel Bristlecone.

Recent Study Aids 
College Dropout 

Rochester, N.Y. - (l.P.) Can 
college dropouts be salvaged? 
Does a college or un iversity 
"owe" its dropoutf a second 
chance? Does a liberal readmis- 
sion policy for dropouts pay off? 
A solid "yes" to all three ques- 
tions comes from the University 
of Rochester, which has com- 
pleted a study by its Office of 
Institutional Studies and Plan- 
ning on dropouts who have been 
readmitted during the past five 

The readmitted dropouts cov- 
ered by the study included 102 
students in good standing (stu- 
dents who left voluntarily after 
doing satisfactory work; and 76 
students readmitted on probation. 
Results showed that 85% of those 
readmitted in good standing did 
satisfactory work following their 

return to college. Several, in 
fact, were graduated with dis- 
tinction, high distinction, or hon- 

Of the 76 "poor risk" stu- 
dents readmitted on probation, a 
surprisingly large number — near> 
ly 667o of the group — either were 
graduated, left with a satisfac- 
tory record, or currently are doing 
satisfactory work. 

With seven out of eight under- 
graduates coming from the top 
fifth of their high school gradu- 
ating classes, Rochester has a 
low dropout rate, according to 
the report. Over the past five 
years only 3.5% of its under- 
graduates left the University be-

Kingsmen Brilliant 
On National Tour 

Having completed a national 
tour during the month of August, 
the Kingsmen Quartet is looking 
forward to a busy schedule. For 
two years the "official tour" of 
California Lutheran College have 
been representing CLC In a wide 
variety ofpublic relations assign- 

to, Reno, Minneapolis, Omaha, 
and Springfield, and a real warm 
welcome In New York City and the 
World's Fair. 

The experience was well worth 
the work in scheduling and ar- 
ranging for adequate publicity 
materials. The goup*s travel mil- 
eage has now increased to over 

THE KINGSMEN QUARTET . . . fresh from Iheir national tour 
this summer, show style that has gained them thousands of fans 
across the country. Left to right are Bill Ewing, Karsten Lundring, 
Jim Bessey. and Brian Spafford. 

This year's tour was aterrific 
experience for the members of 
the quartet. 8000 miles of high- 
way went buzzing by as the Kings- 
men made their way through 24 
states and two countries with only 
one flat tire, two traffic warn, 
ings, and one citation. The rest of 
the statistics include the 17,000 
people who heard the group dur- 
ing the tour. 

The ALC International Luther 
League Convention in Detroit, 
Michigan was the highlight of the 
trip. The Kingsmen made four j 
appearances on the convention , 
floor at Cobo Hall, before an aud- 
ience of 12,400 perspective stu- 
dents. (Let's hope they weren't i 
to successful or we'll really be ■ 
crowded in the dorms next year). 
The Cal Lutheran exhibit was the 
talk of the convention; and the 
admissions officers of our "sis. 
ter colleges " seemed to be the 
most voracious. 

Other highlights of the tour in- 
cluded tremendous, standing 
room only crowds in Sacramen- 

New Faculty 

Dr. L Baranski - 
New Psychology Prof. 

This is the beginning of Cal- 
ifornia Lutheran College's fourth 
year as an institution of Christian 
Higher Education. With the begin- 
ning of this year, and with the 
graduation of our first senior 
class last summer, CLC is gain- 
ing an amount of tradition that has 
never been known by this college 

A part of the tradition is the 
Bell Tower located in the quad. 
Until this past summer, the giant 
titanium bell, which was once a 
rocket nose cone, rested majes- 
tically at the base of the cross 
atop the bell tower. Late this 
summer this traditional symbol 
was replaced with an insignifi- 
cant, (except for the noise it cre- 
ates) "high-school" type bell 
which rings every half hour. A 
bell of this type is of no practical 
or traditional value. 

But perhaps it does have its 
advantages. It will interupt pro- 
fessors to whom we do not par- 
ticularly want to listen and of

by Gill Strotten 

Here we are again sports fans. 
Time to call 'em as we see 'em. 
This is your ol' grid scribe Gil 
Strotten here to give you all the 
dope on the rapidly approaching 
pigskin program. September I st 
saw CLC grid mentor Bob Shoup 
greeting 48 salivating hulks 
thirsting for the sweet nectar of 
victory and dreading the bitter 
taste of defeat. Shoup, boyish 
tamer , of the CLC lions was en- 
thusiastically optimistic about his 
squad's chances. When queried by 
this reporter as to the prospects 
for this fall, Shoup replied enthu-': 
siastically, "Swell." Press day 
saw the articulate Shoup wow the 
local scribes as his spirited team 
cavorted for the cameraso. 

And now looking to the team. 
With a nucleus of twenty-three 
monogram winners and some highly " 
touted transfer students blended 
with as fine a crop of freshman , 
gridders as ever trod the CLC 
turf, it is safe to say that '64 is 
not a rebuilding year, to be sure. 
Among the returning lettermen ol" 
last year's Cinderella team are 
such line bulwarks the likes of 
Gary Lantz, Paul Harmon, Fred 
Kemp, Jim Tschida, Al Layman, 
Tom Stanley and Steve Sutherland 
who are the seven blocks of silly 
putty who struck terror into the 
hearts of enemy linemen. They 
are supplemented by probably ont 
of the flashiest backfields Shoup 
has ever assembled, better known 
as "The Four Conejos." It is 
hoped that they will be able to 
scamper unmolested through holes 
opened by the massive forward 
wall. These prolific speedsters 
are "Rabbit" Thompson, "Bun- 
ny" Trevathan. "Herr" Regalado, 

Gaudio's favorite target in 
Shoup's wide-open attack is Rich- 
ard "Skip" Mooney who although 
but a junior is highly touted as 
CLC's first All-American candi- 
date. Mooney who sparkled in '6.3 
is expected to put on quite a show 
for the home town folks this sea- 
son. Gaudio, although considered 
small for a college quarterback, is 
Q veritable behemoth when the 
chips are down and last year's 
stats show that enemy pass de- 
was all but riddled by his aerial 
harrassraent. The G audio- to- 


have size, speed, and experience 
this year, which add up to an ex- 

i;iting seaman at college football.

Pep Commission Keeps 
Campus Spirit Aloft 

by Karsten Lundring 
Pep CommiBBioner 

Pep is going to be a big word 
around the CbI Lutheran campus 
this year for many reasons: we 
have great coaches, bigger and 
better teams in bigger and better 
competition; we now have a name 
that is respected in all collegiate 
sports circles, and; moat of all, 
we have the most enthusiastic 
freshman class ever. 

This week, the sophomores 
have had a chance to welcome 
the frosh to CLC in their own 
little way, and tomorrow all class- 
es will unite for the first time 
this year. We are all going to 
work together to bring the Kings- 
men to our first victory of the 
season. Two years ago, La Verne 
"whomped" us 46-6 and last year 
our pachederms surprised them 
with an 8-0 victory, so Saturday 
promises to be an interesting 
grudge match. Last year, the La 
Verne coach was a little upset 
about tbeir humiliating loss and 
he told coach Shoup after the 
game, that with a team like we 
had, we should really go places 
(in fact, he even mentioned one 
of the places). 

By this time, everyone has no- 
ticed that our football team is 
much larger than the last two 
yeate. In fact, one of the new 
players hopped on our brand new 
"I speak your weight" scales, 
and the voice from the scale spoke 
up: "One at a time please." On 
top of being large, the Kingsmen 
are really tough this year. I was 
out watching the Ventura scrim- 
mage last S^urday and I over- 
heard coach Shoup come over to 

the bench and say to a mean-look- 
ing player. "Go out there and get 
ferocious." The player, excited 
about going in, put on his helmet 
and asked, "What's his number 

As you can see, it looks like 
an interesting year. A newly form- 
ed club on campus, the Pep Com- 
mission, has been orsanized to 
create spirit at the athletic e- 
vents. With all the promise for a 
great sports year, it looks as if 
they are going to have an easy 
job. They do have other responsi- 
bilities though, and will be com- 
petition to the Letterman's Club 
as the most active group on cam- 

An indication of the tremendous 
spirit this year is the receiving of 
268 applications to be on the com- 
mission. Out of these 268 arplica- 
tions, only 25 could be chosen, so 
there are many people who want to 
work on encouraging "PEP." 
This column, "PEP. ETC." will 
appear throughout the year, inform- 
ing you of all athletic events, 
special sports events, pep rallies, 
etc., and also of all the activities 
of the Pep Commission. 

We'll see you all at the field 
tomorrow afternoon at 2:00 P.M. in 
your white ahiits and blouses, as 
we "Crown *Em, Kingsmen!" 


Also, a reminder about next 
weeks big. big game with Occiden- 
tal College, on our field at 2:00.

Reorganization Of Men's 
Intra-mural Program 


Seimans New 
Ath. Director 

The old intramural program 
which moat students are familiar 
with has received a face lifting 
and a new more diversified pro- 
gram has emerged teom the 

With the formation of four 
strong classes the intramural pro- 
gram has taken another step to- 
ward making Intramurals a better 
and broader program. Basically 
the program will remain the same 
except that a representative will 
be elected from each class to 
serve on the I - M executive 
board. Classes will be allowed to 
enter as many teams as it wishes 
according to the rules and rei.ola- 
tions in the I - M handbook which 
will be forthcoming. Points will be 
awau'ded according to standings, 
teams entered and varsity players 
in the sport. Trophys and medals 

will be given to teams in acoord- 
aoce with final standings. 
I The I - M sports program is set 
up for the students and they in 
turn, through duly elected repre- 
sentatives, govern, promote and 
conduct their activities under the 
guidance of the I * M adminis- 

Coach Don Garrison will be 
the faculty member in charge of 
the Intramural program. 

The Department of Physical 
Education welcomes any construc- 
tive criticism or suggestions 
which may be offered by individu- 
als or groups looking toward a 
better and broader 'intramurals 
program at CLC- 

Actively supporting this po-

ucation which cannot be auiple- 

John Siemens, assistant pro- 
fessor in physical education at 
CLC will replace Dr. Schwich as 
Director of Physical Education 
and athletics for the 1964-65 aca- 
demic year. 

Dr. Luther Schwich resigned 
his post as Athletic Director this 
past summer in order to accept a 
position at Concordia Teachers 
College, Seward, Nebraska. 

Dr. Schwich came to CLC in 
1961 when the college was found- 
ed, coaching basketball for two 
seasons and baseball for three 

The position to which Dr. 
Schwich is moving is administra- 
tive in function. He will work as 
Supervisor of Institutional Phys- 
ical Education and Athletics. 

In announcing his acceptance. 
Dr. Schwich said, "I am grateful 
for the opportunity afforded me to 
become associated with California 
Lutheran College, The experience 
of building a program from nothing 
to experience the satisfaction of 
seeing a program flourish and 
grow IS a privilege not given to 
many persons." 

He leaves behind him many 
fine accomplishments at CLC as 
well as in the community. Through 
his leadership the athletic pro- 
gram has emerged from_ almost 
nothing to a highly developed 
well-rounded program. 

Coach Siemens joined the 
Physical Education staff in 1963. 
He is a graduate of George Pep- 
perdine College and received his 
master of arts degree from Cal 
Poly in San Luis Obispo. In addi- 
tion he has earned graduate hours 
beyond his M. A. at the Univer- 
sity of Southern California. 

Prior to joining the faculty at 
CLC as varsity basketball coach, 
he wasithe Director of Athletics 
and Physical Education at West- 
mont College where he coached 
both baseball and basketball. 

There will be new addition in 
several areas of the athletic de- 
partment for the coming year: 
along with his new duties Coach 
Siemens will continue to coach 
the varsity basketball team; Rob- 
ert Shoup and George Carter will 
take over the duties in baseball; 
Don Garrison, a new addition to 
the staff will be the wrestling 
CGBch and assist in football and

track star at Augustana, will han- 
dle the track team.

Colorful Show To Be 
Staged Tomorrow 

by Paul Kilbert 
Echo Sports Editor 

Tomorrow marks the opening 
of the 1964 football campaign. It 
is very interesting to note that in 
three short years the Kingsman 
are holding their own against top 
football competition. This years 
squad looks much better than pre- 
vious years due to experience 
and depth. With a few breaks an 
undefeated season is within 

Kingsmen up 

For the players everything 
they have learned in the past few 
weeks will be put on the line. 
This is it, all knowledge and 
skill will be combined with de- 
sire in a team effort to crush La 

Grudge battle 

But don't sell La Verne short. 
They will be up for this one. Sol- 
id Kingsman defense beat them 
last year 8-0, a loss which cut 
deeply into the pride of the Leop- 

Key game 

The team will have to be up 
for this game or it will pass them 
by like a vicious tornado. This 

might well be the key game of the 
entire season. It could make us 
or break us. 

Colorful season 

From what I've seen the team 
this year will be the most excit- 
ing and colorful football team in 
Kingsman history. Everyone 
should turn out and show the 
team that C.L.C. is behind them 
100 per cent. There is nothing 
that makes a team play better 
than a shouting, yelling, and 
screeching student body. Back 
our team and I'm sure you won't 
be dissppointed in their per- 
formance . 

Cross Country sidelight 

An interesting sidelight in 
tomorrows game will come at 
halftime, when coach Bob Belk 
gives an explantion on cross 
country. Many people fail to re- 
alize that cross country is a 
sport and not just a bunch of nuts 
running until they drop. It is an 
interesting one and should be 
brought out into the open. 1 urge 
everyone to stick around at half- 
time and learn more about this 
fast rising sport.

In case you haven't heard C. 
L.C.'s football team is ranked 7 
7th of independents in Calif....

cont. from page 5 

This season was divided into 
two rounds, each consisting of 
six games. At the end of the first 
roun d CLC was tied for first 
place with Giacappuzzi, each 
with a 4-2 record. This, however, 
was after a protest game with 
Shadow Oaks which ended in a 
25-2 victory for CLC. The Gen- 
eral Telephone sponsored CLC 
girls turned in a perfect second 
round, 6-0, and went on to defeat 
Giacappuzzi 7-4 in the champion- 
ship game. 

The team consisted mostly of 
girls who were working on campus 
during the summer. Much of the 
team strength lay in the expert 
pitching of Mrs. Desa Benten, who 
turned in a number of fine per* 
formances. Other team included 
Linda Benten, Margi Liivamaci, 
Karen Reitan, Judy Schueler, Gail

the second highest batting aver-

ECHO begins anew 

New Goals Set By 
ECHO Staff 

With this issue the Mountclef ECHO begins another 
academic year of publication. Despite a cut in budget, 
we are planning to publish one issue every other week. 
B^very issue is planned for eight pages and we hope to 
be able to publish at least one special issue during the 
year. Regular publication is the first of many steps to 
be taken this year in hopes of improving the quality of 
the ECHO. 

The staff of the ECHO expects to enjoy much smoo- 
ther relations with the college administration this year. 
This factor will prove of significant value to students, 
faculty, administration, and friends of the college. 
However, the ECHO is primarily published for the ben- 
efit of the students. The Mountclef ECHO will continue 
to be published by and for the Associated Students of 
California Lutheran CoHege. 

As the only regularly and freqiantly published col- 
lege news publication, the management of the ECHO 
also realizes and readily accepts its responsibility in 
this area. 

With the addition of the "Little Man on Campus" 
cartoon series and continued membership in Intercol- 
legiate Press, we hope to increase student interest in 
the paper. A college newspaper can only be as good as 
the support from the students for whom it is published. 
If you are not willing to take an active interest in your 
college paper, then you. both individually and collectiv- 
ely, are entitled only to the mediocrity which has been 
associated with the ECHO in past semesters. 

Let us together make this an outstanding year for 
California Lutheran College and the Mountclef Echo. 


Student Council 
Begins Sessions 



This section of the Mountclef 
ECHO has traditionally been a 
place set aside for the express- 
sion of student opinion. This 
year is planned as no exception.. 
In the form of "Letters to the 
Editor", a student may express 
his opinion on any phase of cam- 
pus or national situations and ev- 
ents. In this way, you, the stu- 
dent, may be able to effect 
changes which you feel are nec- 

At a time when national elec- 
tions are at hand, the ECHO will 
print guest editorials dealing 
with political matters. These, 
along with Letters to the Editor, 
may be submitted to the Mount- 
clef ECHO. 

The Mountclef ECHO reserves 
the right to select letters for pub- 
lication and to correct errors such 
as spelling, grammar, and punc- 
tuation. All letters must seek the 
truth as sought by its author and 
may not be injurious to any party 
without factual reason or cause. 

All letters must be signed by 
their individual authors. "Name 
withheld upon request" will be 
granted signed letters upon the 
author's request. 

Letter must be submitted by 
Wednesday of the week prior to 

Latter to the Editor; 

Youth Dept. Cites 
CLC Coed Group 

Dear Sir: 

Our office would like to call to your attention one of the out- 
standing accomplishments of some of your students this sum- 
mer. Perhaps you are aware that eight girls from your campus 
formed a listening witness group in North Hollywood. The 
purpose of this group was to discover possibilities for making 
the church more meaningful in the lives of people involved in 
the entertainment world. 

The findings of this group have just come to my desk and 
reveal a very exciting and meaningful summer. I though gpei^ 
haps your newspaper would like to make a feature on this as 
it is something we hope the students at California Lutheran 
will follow through on and continue next summer. 
The group was a phase of Youth Ministries called a Listen- 
ing Witness cell. The students, in this case eight girls, ob- 
tained jobs in a certain area and lived and studied together. 
They made their witness in the community by listening and 
learning this different way of life. The girls who participated 
in this are Mary Malde, Janet Monson, Donna Swope, Carole 
Jensen, Terri Harinen, Jonelle Faide, Judy Gray, and Brenda 
Priest. All of these are planning to return to California Lu- 
theran except the last two. 

I have not enclosed a news release because 1 believe some 
of the personal enthusiasm of the girls would be lost. I sug- 
gest your reporter interview them in person for a more effec- 
tive story as it relates to your campus. 
If I can be of help in any way please let me loiow. 

Marcia Brenton 

The Student Council first met 
as a group Sept. 4, beginning sev- 
eral days of orientation meetings 
based on the theme "Student 
Life-Student ResponstbUlty." A 
banquet opened this first pro- 
gram and Dr. Bernard HUiila 
spoke. His topic was "The Stu- 
dent As Scholar." 

Throughout the foUowtng days, 
the Council directed Its attention 
to various aspects of student re- 
sponsibility In areas of personal 
growth and in the many facets of 
college and community life. This 
theme was developed by speakers 
from the entire college adminis- 
tration as well as from the com- 
munity of Thousand Oaks. 

Most of the student govern- 
ment in the past has been with- 
in the committees and organiza- 
tions which compose the Coun- 
cil. However, several en- 
couraging features of the 1964-65 
Council have already become ap- 
parent . The new , Council Is 
largely made up of student lead- 
ers who have prevlQ,usly held re- 
sponsible positions in college 
level government. This has re- 

sulted in more sophisticated or- 
ganization for this year's activ- 
ities. Also, a great deal of sum- 
mer preparation has obviously 
been done by the Council mem- 
bers, which puts this group much 
further ahead In Us work than 
any previous Council has been. 
These factors, combined with the 
additional depth created by the 
formation of the Pep Commission 
and the strong leadership of ASB 
President George Engdahl, 
should make this year the most 
successful to datefrom the stand* 
point of student government. 

Aside from the work being 
done by the representative or- 
ganizations In the Student Coun- 
cil, immediate steps have been 
taken to provide students with 
student directories at the ear- 
liest possible date. Planning is 
also underway for the ALC Stu- 
dent Conference at P L U. The 
Conference will be held during 
Thanksgiving vacation and will 
Investigate the vocation of the stu- 
dent college community of the

First President's Convocation 
Stresses Christian Freedom 

THOUSAND OAKS VOTERS . . . assembled last Friday night m the 
gym-auditorium to hear speeches from the community citizens seek- 
ing city council seats. The meeting was open to CLC students who 
hecrd some 32 speeches and overwhelming sufport for the "city in- 
corporation" proposition. Voting took place Tuesday at several 
places in the Thousand Oaks area. 

The first of a series of 
scheduled Presidential Con- 
vocations was held Tuesday 
morning in the Cal Lutheran 

Dr. Bernard Hillila. Dean of 
the College, opened the Con- 
vocation by introducing Pres- 
ident Raymond Olson, the 
guest speaker. Following a 
scripture reading. Dr. Olson 
addressed the 800 student

Thousand Oaks Voters IVIeet 

Last Friday night our gym 
was the scene of the Conejo 
Valley voters convention. 
Thirty prospective candi- 
dates, campaigning for five 
seats on the proposed city 
council, represented them- 
selves with four minute plat- 
form talks. Each of the candi- 
dates for the "city council 
seats" with the exception of 
William Ritner favored the in- 
corporation of Thousand Oaks. 
Bruce Cameron functioned as 
moderator for the evening, on 
several occasions stepping 
forward to remind the candi- 
dates that their four minute

period was over. 

Upwards of 250 Conejo Val- 
ley voters were on hand, out 
of an estimated 7,500 voter 
population. During the evening 
an ijnpromptu hand vote of the 
convention conducted by can- 
didate Gary Richardson shew- 
ed only four of those seated 
on the gym floor to be in op- 
position to the proposed in- 

Among the 30 prospective 
councilmen seated at the 
stage was Mr. Carroll Bowen 
husband to Mrs. Betty Bowen, 

associate professor at C.L.C. 
In a brief interview at the 
close of the proceedings Mr. 
Fred Stanard. Chairman of the 
convention, and editor of the 
Chronicle, expressed the be- 
lief that incorporation will 
serve C.L.C. by eliminating 
much of the red tape involved 
in dealing through Ventura 
County, on such matters as 
zoning etc. He went on to in- 
dicate that incorporation will 
bring our campus into close 
contact with a city actively 
concerned with the college's 
role in the Thousand Oaks 

sent on the topic "Freedom 
and the Christian College". 

In the course of his address. 
Dr. Olson mentioned the role of 
freedom in academic, student, 
Christian, and political areas. 
"Freedom is a special kind of 
bonding commitment and man's 
acceptance of his existence 
loosens this bondage." The 
President went on to focus on 
the Christian concept of free- 
dom saying "The Christian is 
opened into a free world by 
God. for man. National and 
inter-society bonds often serve 
only towards the ultimate loss 
of this freedom, making man a 
functionary being. We must be- 
long to God to be free. This 
freedom is one of a great com- 

Dr. Olson remarketl that many 
unrestrained activities, of cam- 
pus life in particular, are not a 
show of freedom. They serve, 
rather, to give up our freedom 
and loosen our commitment to 
God. "Freedom leQUires re- 

quires restraint", noted Dr. 

"We have become, in our 
society, consumers of free- 
dom". Dr. Olson drew an a- 
nalogy between this situation 
and the recent Santa Barbara 
fires saying" burns and 
nothing is put in its place." 
Dr. Olson stressed that the 
freedom to which he refers 
must not be static, but ever 
renewing. California Lutheran 
College offers a great chance 
in searching ror freedom, "in- 
herent in the possibility we 

In closing the convocation, 
Dr. Olson directed his com- 
ments toward the student body 
by saying, 'We want you to be 
free people and that freedom Is 
related to your God. 

The next convocation 
scheduled for October 27. The 
featured speaker will be the 
noted theologian, author and 
lecturer, Dr. John Bright. 

IVIaster Planning Step Taken 

A decision, made by the Board 
of Regents of Catifornia Lutheran 
College, Thousand Oaks, to enter 
into formal agreement with the 
firm of Ernest J. Kump Associ- 
ated, architects and planning con- 
sultants, Palo Alto. California, 
marks a major step toward the fi- 
nal realization of a new campus 
for California Lutheran College. 
An announcement, made by 
Dr. Raymond M. Olson, president 
of California Lutheran College, 
states that the decision calls for 
immediate action in master plan- 
ning the develq>ment of the fu- 
ture California Lutheran campus 
to b« located North of Olsen Road 

and Mountclef Village, present 
home of the college. 

The planning services consist 
of three phases including master 
planning, fund raising and archi- 
tectural services. This consists 
of a review and evaluation of ex- 
istent work in' master planning 
prepared by others, plus a program 
covering euch aspects as space 
requirements, estimates of cost, 
quality level and architectural 
cbaracter, sufficient to meet the 
ultimate enrollment requirements. 
An overall master plan in 
graphic form will be developed 
outlining land use, building re- 
. lationships, circulation, parking 

and general landscaping. 

California Lutheran, to embark 
on its 4th academic year with the 
opening of classes on September 
14, expects a fall enrollment fig- 
ure of approximately 700 students. 
Increas ing enrollment growth 
points out the urgent need for con- 
struction of dormitories on the 
new campus. Mountclef village, 
planned as a community shopping 
center and service center, as well 
as a residential community for 
faculty, stafT and guests, will be- 
come a significant part of the 
college's endowment fund, pro- 
viding funds for the operation of 
the college as it moves to its 
permanent campus.

style of gospel in jazz in their folk music will perform tonight in

Literary Contributions 
Sought By DecreeStaff 

This year the Decree Lit- 
erary Magazine is planning to 
widen its perspectives in sev- 
eral ways. Where in the past 
it has been a yearly publica- 
tion, the intensions are at 
present to publish a magazine 
each semester. It is felt that 
this will bring the magazine 
more into the public eye and 
therefore enable it to better 
serve its purpose as an in- 
strument for the expression of 
student creativity. 

More important, however, is 
the fact that the scope of the 
magazine is to be widened. It 
is no longer to be strictly & 
"literary" magazine - more 
appropriately, it should hp 
called a creative arts publica- 
tion. Plans are to include the 
best nf the student art work in

the magazine and in that way 
make the work done in that 
aepariment more known to the 
total student body. 

The deadline for contribu- 
tions of manuscripts and art 
work has been set at Novem- 
bet 13 for the first issue and 
these may be submitted any 
time before that date to either 
John Moreland or Miss Her- 
lihy. Positions on the staff of 
the magazine are open to stu- 
dents of all classes and per- 
sons interested in working on 
the statt should also contact 
the above persons.

The recent election of men's dorm officers for the cur- 
rent year was contested, necessitating a second elec-' 
tion, which was held Thursday. Results of that election 
were not available at press time, but were posted in the 
Mountclef Inn. 

Jim Tschida an unsuccessful candidate on the first 
ballot, took exception to the vote. His objection was 
that commuting students were allowed to vote. 

Since commuting students do not live in the dorm. 
they are not subject to any dorm regulations. Therefore 
they are ineligible to vote for dorm officers.

Machines To Aid Students 

Ann Arbor, Mich. (I. P.) 
Automation will turn college 
lecture halls into discussion 
forums, a University of Mich- 
igan authority predicts. Dr. 
Stanford C. Ericksen. director 
of the Center for Research on 
Learning and Teaching, said 
here that teaching machines 
'will allow students to learn 
more on their own initiative. 

The professor thereby will 

gain "some degree of freedom 
from his traditional role of 
telling things lo students and 
moves closer to the more re- 
warding relationship of dis- 

cussing things with his stu- 
dents." he explained. 

Technological means of pre- 
senting information to the stu- 
dent — such as educational 
television and programmed in- 
struction — will come to uti- 
lize "the powerful factors that 
lie within individually differ- 
ent students," Dr. Ericksen 

"Insofar as the student can 
acquire the prerequisite infor- 
mation by himself, he can then 
converse with his teacher in a 
two-way inquiry about prob- 
lems and issues for which 

AWS Seeking Astronaut 
To Emcee Talent Show 

On October 10, the Associ- 
ated Women Students are plan- 
ning something that has never 
been done before at California 
Lutheran College - they are 
planning to put a man in 
space. They are not exactly 
sure just how "far-out" he 
will be or what his chances of 
returning are, but they are. 
nevertheless, certain that 
they will be able to find a 
male courageous enough to 
make the sacrifice. 

This "way-out" attempt is 
being planned in coryunction 
with the annual AWS talent 
show to be ■ held in the Gym at 
8:00 p.m. on the same eve- 
ning, a Saturday. Appropriate- 
ly enough, the talent show is 

being called "Telstar" and 
will feature the best talent on 
campus. In past years the 
AWS has treated the school to 
such outstanding perform- 
ances as Linda Benton doing 
the Charleston and Karen 
Satrum and Jim Bessey por- 
traying the newly married cou- 
ple in the skit, "Well. Here 
We Arel" and this year's pro- 
gram promises to provide e- 
qually good entertainment. If 
he survives his launching, the 
outer-space volunteer will MC 
the program from his vantage 
point in the stars. 

So keep your calendar open 
on Saturday night, October 10, 
for two hours of "out of this 
world" entertainment. 

answers are not yet known," 
Dr. Ericksen continued. Simi- 
lar to the dialogues Greek 

philosophers had with their 
students, this is university 
teaching at its best, he added. 

Michigan's Center for Re- 
search on Learning and 
Teaching is working to a- 
chieve this level of teaching. 
Dr. Ericksen said. He pointed 
out that graduating seniors in 
future years will not only have 
learned how new knowledge is 
acquired and how they as 
members of society can adapt 
to the rapidly expanding body 
information concerning the 
physical and biological world 
as well as the social affairs 
of man. 

"This means that college 
teaching must go beyond the 
relatively easy task of trans- 
mitting established . {uiowj- 
edge. The more difficult role 
will not be a choice between 
teaching and researching, but 
rather how to bring these atti- 
tudes and issues and methods 
of intellectual exjioration and 
inquiry into the classroom." 

A whirlwind summer in Eu- 
rope is only a dream for many 
but tor Judy Taylor it is the 
recapturing of fleeting mo- 
ments in magic lands. Judy, a 
Junibr at CLC, hurtled through 
a four day tour of Belgium, 
France, Germany. Holland, 
and Luxemburg: after which 
she decided to take a languid 
journey through the countries 
and places that struck her 
fancy. Some of these were the 
Westminster Abbey, the Cathe- 
dral at Strousburg, and the 
subways of Paris. 

Like so many before. Judy 
was taken with France. The 
quaintness of open air mar- 
kets, the optimistic people 
and their enchanting tradi- 
tions, captured the essence of 
carefree living. During her 

stay in Paris, she lived with 
French families and found 
them to be not only a warm, 
friendly people, but also sin- 
cere and compassionate. 

Judy also developed an ex- 
tremely unusually hobby while 
staying in England. It seems 
she walked through the streets 
of London in order to read the 
amusing pub signs, well any- 
way, I guess it beats some of 
those English movies. 

Judy, who is in hopes of 
becoming a interpreter for 
England, plans to continue her 
studies in France. 

Pre-Sem Club Meeting 
Explores Church Role 

The contemporary role of 
the Church was explored at 
the CLC Pre-Sem Club's first 
meeting this year. 

Twenty-five to thirty stud- 
ents gathered at the home of 
Dr. Wallace Asper to hear fa- 
culty members Dr. Hillila, 
Rev. Kallas, Prof. Saez, Dr. 
Keithey and Rev. Wagner ex- 
press their views of the mis- 
sion of the Church today. Dr. 
Asper then led a general dis- 
cussion of the topic. 

Two conclusions reached 
during the evening were that 
the Church faces a problem of 
communication with the mod- 
ern world, and that the Church 
should take definite positions 
on current issues, yet stay 
within the framework of the 

Sponsors and officers of 
the club emphasize that mem- 
bership is not limited to 
actual Pre-Seminary students. 
Any persons interested are 
encouraged to attend meetings 
throughout the year.

Kingsmen Girls Initiate The 
Listening Witness Program 


To live, to seek, to learn, 
to observe—these were our in- 
tense goals as a Listening 
Witness Team for the summer 
beginning June 8. 1964. The 
members of this team spon- 
sored by the Youth Depart- 
ment of the American Luther- 
an Church were Brenda Priest. 
Judy Gray, Carole Jensen, 
Terri Harinen, Mary Malde, 
Janet Monson. Jonelle Falde. 
and Donna Swope. 

The first phase presented us 
with the opportunity of work- 
ing with the community 
through Emmanuel Lutheran in 
North Hollywood. We were in- 
vited to participate in their 
College Career Group. Bible 
studies, socials, church ser- 
vice, Jr. and Sr. League, and 
Sunday School. Our greatest 
ee perience here was on an

explaining our summer work. 

The first few weeks were 
times of new living experi- 
ences with new people— men- 
us, cooking, dishwashing, job 
hunting. Finally we were set- 
tled in our cozy apartment, 
acquainted with lOne another, 
employed at various offices , 
and ready to begin the Listen- 
ing Witness program. 

Our weekly seminars were 
the second important phase of 
the summer. These seminars 

allowed us to explore fields 
of interest within and outside 

the church, and they brought 
us in contact with new places 
and people such as found at 
the Alcoholics Anonymous 
meeting house in North HoUy- 
wcDd and at Synanon, a center 
for dope addicts in Santa 
Monica. Such penetrating sub- 
jects as speaking in tongues, 
communion, censorship, dope 

addiction, faith healing, and 
others provided us with a 
chance to explore not only 
others and their problems but 
also our own beliefs and pro- 

Our project was perhaps, 
the most exciting phase of 
our program. The Youth De- 
partment had given us the 
broad topic of "How the 
church can better teach the 
entertainment field.'* which 
we were to develop in any 
manner we choose. To begin 
with we visited Hollywood 
Life, a group of young aspir- 
ing Christian actors and ac- 
tresses who meet weekly at 
the Knickerbocker Hotel in 
Hollywood. Then we went to 
its sister organization The 
Hollywood Christian Group 
headed by Dale Evans Rog- 
ers. A tour of CBS Television 
City given by a young Chris- 
tian executive introduced to 
the television world. Bob 
TurnbuU, a young actor and 
youth director at Emmanuel, 
held a party in our honor at 
which we were given plenty 
of time to interview people

The Sudden Sun' 
Expands Simple Theme 

by John Moreland 
ECHO Literary Editor 

Hartman, Fortress Press, 
1964, 138 p. Doubt, a grey fog 
which taints and distorts all 
that is seen and felt, is the 
topic of this almost over- 
whelmingly simple novel. The 
author tells us, "This novel 
is a liturgy - each chapter 
corresponding to one of the 
eight canonical hours." But it 
is not the form of the book 
which gives it it's strength; 
it is, rather, the simple di- 
rectness with which the doubt 
which lies in all of us is pin- 
pointed. It is not the charac- 
ter but the reader, all readers, 
who utter the phrase which 
echoes through the book. 
"What do you want of me?" 
and then wonders whether 
there is anyone to whom to 
address the question. 

The plot is made up of a 
few simple events. A woman, 
the central character, has 
been unfaithful to her husband 
after his seeming retirement 
from the world to the, study of 
the sciences. Their retarded 

son is then accidentally mur- 
dered forcing the characters 
into a reevaluation of their 
son, each other, and life as a 
whole. And it is her doubt 
which acts as catalist to so- 
lidify her belief and answer 
her own question, "What do 
You want of me?" It is love 
that is wanted. 

One has the" tendency to 
abhor doubt, to ignore it even 
in one's own mind. But Hart- 
man is here teaching that 
doubt is not something to be 
ignored, it is something that 
must be reckoned with face to 
face. And from a certain view, 
doubt can be seen as of val- 
ue. It is doubt which leads 
one to a fuller examination of 
one's faith. It is doubt which 
leads one to God. 

Olov Hartman has created a 
beautiful work and must be 
commended for not falling in- 
to the trap of over-develop- 
ment of a simple theme. This 
book, though small, is well 
worth reading.

Kingsmen Bow Before Oxy 

Kingsmen gridders evened 
their season record at 1-1 last 
week by losing a lack lus- 
trous performance to highly 
touted Occidental College 28- 
7. The Kingsmen will face a 
tough Southern Utah college 
team tomorrow. 

The first Quarter was an 
even match as neither team 
could muster drive into pay- 

First Blood 

The second quarter began in 

much the same manner, but 
with 9:41 remaining on the 
clock t]•^ Kingsman drew 
first blood when Oxy's 
George Herold fumbled a 
Dave Regalado punt in the 
end zone and Kingsman Paul 
Phipps recovered for six. 
George "the toe" Engdahl's 
kick hit the goal post and 
over to put the kingsmen a— 
head 7-0. 

The lead however was short 
lived as Oxy climaxed a 58 
yd- drive with 50 sec_ left in 
the half when quaterback Jim 
Wanless connected to half- 
back Herold for five yards and 
paydirt. Wanless then split 
the uprights to knot the game 
at seven all. 

After taking the kickoff C.L. 
C, moved to the 20 yd.^Tine of 
Oxy but Engdals 20 yd. field 
goal attempt was wide ending 
the first half. 

Oxy Scores 

Oxy took the second half 
kickoff and marched to the 
CLC 8 yd. line where Wanless 
passed to Steve Harper and 
paydirt. the kick was good to 
paydirt. The kick was good to 
make the score 14-7. 

From here on out it was 
Oxy's game as the Kingsmen 
pass defense fell apart. 

The loss of Fred Kemp and 
Al Lehman was definetly felt 
but the famed CLC passing 
attack failed to materialize 
when needed. 

Tomorrow the Southern 

Utah Thunderbirds will play 
host to Kingsmen footballers. 
CLC will be trying to avenge 
a loss which they received at 
the hands of the T-Birds last 

year. ^ 

Southern Utah has been a 
junior college for 63 years 
and is in its third year as a 
four-year college. 

The college was establish- 
ed in 1897 as an insignificant 
branch of the University of 

11.000 feet. Unfortunately for 
the campus, the peaks cause 
the sun to set at noon. 

A view of the campus will 
show twenty buildings includ- 
ing recreational and living ac- 
comodations. The faculty con- 
sits of 60 members, and the 
school is accredited by the 
Northwest Accreditation As- 
sociation of Secondary and 
Higher Schools. 

POWER AND SPEED . . . as exemplified by fullback Jerry Palm- 
quist, now ineligible and greatly missed in the Occidental game, 
characterized the Kingsmen in their La Verne encounter. As a re- 
result of fiue ineligibilities, the CLC eleven suffered a crushing 
defeat at the hands of Oxy last Saturday. Kingsmen gridders face 
the College of Southern Utah tomorrow in Cedar City, Utah. 

Utah. In 1913 the college was 
transferred to the Utah State 
Agricultural College and be- 
came an important part of the 
Land-Grant System in Utah, 
thus expandine in academic 
choices as the student enroll- 
ment increased. 

College of Southern Utah 
was given to the school in 
1953. The enrollment 's over 
1,000 students representing 
most of the counties in Utah, 
plus several states and for- 
eign countries. 

The campus is nestled 
among 60 acres of pine trees 
situated at the base of moun- 
tains, boasting an altitude of

collegiate Athletics (NAIA).

Visions Of The Past 

By Paul Kilbert 
ECHO Sports Editor 

Date: Friday. Feb. 2, 1962 - Place: California Lutheran 
College-Event: Semester grades due-Results: Shocking. 

Only a few people will remember this "Black" Friday. 
It was one of the most tragic happenings in CLC's short 
athletic history. 

In the morning everything was bright and rosy. By night- 
fall the Kingsmen Basketball team had lost three-fifths of 

the starting five. 

Basketball, like football, is a sport where precision is 
essential, split-second timing is a necessity and practice 
with teammates is imperative for accomplishment of either. 

People were beginning to say the team should cancel its 
remaining games, saying the team could not represent CLC 
properly in intercollegiate competition. It would be just 
like starting the season over. All previous practices would 
mean little. Three new players would have to be broken into 
the starting five. And. as the few who were here still re- 
member, the denth was rather weak. 

No one could expect a team to rebuild during the middle 
of the schedule. Especially one consisting only of fresh- 
men, of which few had much, if any basketball experience. 

True to the predicted course the team went out and lost 
the first two games rather easily. Everything seemed to be 
going according to schedule with the team falling into the 
gorge created by these impetuous predictions. All seemed 

But then, suddenly, like a spark of lightning, the team 
began to win. It won fts first game - "luck" - its second - 
"ridiculous" - its third - "unconscious." 

Yes, this team which everyone had written off as a hope, 
less Salvation Army case had shown that it still had the 
will and determination to win. It was not about to lie down 
and be mutilated. It was ready to fight, and fight it did. fin- 
ishing the second half of the season with a four and four 
record. Not so impressive you say? Well, then consider the 

Recently another athletic crisis hit the campus only this 
time it was the football team which suffered the blow. A 
blow which most people feel ended the season after the 

first game. ,,.'. ' 

But before we write the team off as an imcompetenfc chai^ 
ity case let's remember the Kingsmen history. Give the 
team a chance to play together as a unit. Sure it will take a 
few games but they won't let you down, they'll play their 
hearts out every game, win or lose. This team is still bet- 
ter than any other football team in CLC's history. 

Remembering the old adage, "quitters never win and win- 
ners never quit." I'll be seeing you at the Claremont game, 
Oct. 10.

C.L.C. Harriers begin their 
dual meet competition tomor- 
row when they face Westmont 

Westmont, always tough to 
beat, will be favored slightly 
because of their practice 
time. They are about four 
weeks ahead of the Kings- 
men in running. 

Our school features a cour- 
se which is three and one half 
miles over rough terrain. The 
men who perform these races 
are definitely not sprinters. 
They may be a little less 
speedy, but they have trained 
for endurance. 

The team had its first maj- 
or running test last week-end 
at the Long Beach Invitation- 
al. Led by Bob Russell, the 

team placed seventh in the 
small college division. 

C.L.C. has a much improv- 
ed team than in previous 
years. When October 17 rolls 
around (don't let it roll over 
you) go out and see this uni- 
que sport from which the 
Olympic games were formed. 
You will be surprised at the 
excitement a cross country 
race can create. 

A good Ci'oss country team 
cannot be made up over night. 
In order for a person to be 
able to run five miles without 
stopping, he must train for 
long periods of time. 

Bob Russell, John Russell. 
Russ Flora, Bill Swintoski, 
Gary Weimer and Dennis Barr 
comprise the Kingsmen Cross 
Country team.

Kemp. Lehman dropped from

team gave notice to its poten-

this point, our reaction is cru- 
cial. We cannot be defensive 
nor try to rationalize our in- 
fraction. To try to read in as 
to why the challenge came, or 
to call it "a moan" by SCIAC 
officials is reading a little 
too much into the situation. 
As an accredited institution 
that subscribes to academic 
practices that are in keeping 
witli regional and national 
norms, it is completelyout of 
harmony not to hold to accep- 
ted regulations of same ath- 
letic bodies. 

The loss of Kemp and Leh- 
man is crucial but it is also 
one of many important steps in 
the pulling together of some 
loose ends. Both of these men 
are now absorbed as part of 
the staff and all will agree 
this is still the best for 
C.L.C, a loss but also a 

California Lutheran faculty, 
upon recommendation by the 
Athletic Committee; adopted 
the SCIAC rules. This action 
is clearly stated in the hand- 
book. We were in violation of 
our own rules. 

The California Lutheran 
College Athletic Department 
will hold to eligibility stand- 
ards as stated in the facult] 

The "No Kidding" attitude 
has many indications. Why 
would California Lutheran 
College in its third year of 
history try to move into a con- 
ference that has some of the 
strictest eligibility rules of 
any on the Coast? The aca- 
demic quality and tradition of 
these Colleges is hardly sec- 
ond to none. The admission 
standards, the waiting lists, 
the campuses of these sister 
institutions is challenging. 
C.L.C. wants, to be counted!

Light Side Of Life 

There is no truth whatsoever in the rumor that Karsten 
Lundring's beard is a Squire. 

Since men's dorm, officers weren't elected until this week, 
they have been functioning under a completely democratic 
system: mass hysteria. Resulting from this situation have 
been such incidents as the recent marking pencil fight be- 
tween two of the Mountclef Inn rooms. (To distinguish vet- 
erans of this war, check for marking pencil artistry on male 
arms about campus) 

Final warning: The phone booths in the boys* dorm are 
not safe. We understand from reliable sources that the booths 
have a certain tendency to change position, especially while 

Concensus on campus is that Ant's car looked better after 
the smash. Probably ran better, too. 

We aren't sure just what it is. but there's something that 
makes the engaged guys on campus stand out. {Is it their 
bright shining smiles, or their bald, shaven heads ??) 

Some of the gals have bien aware of football for about 10 
years, but never really enjoyed it. Now, however, they know 
that a first down is a gain of ten yards, not the first man 
tackled (1 down. 10 to go ?) and other relevant information, 
they're much more appreciative of the sport. Their thanks to 
CLC center Gary Washburn for the explanations. 

One of the wonderful aspects of living on campus is the 
privilege of being awakened by the cheerful morning sounds: 
The birds chirping, cheerful voices calling. ..and those blast- 
ed door alarms! Can't get too annoyed with the people who 
set them off in the early morning hours, though, since you've 
probably done the same thing at one time or another. Embar- 
assing. isn't it? 

We're convinced that there are herds of buffalos living on 
the upper floors of all the dorms. No one has seen them yet. 
you can sure "hear" 'em... especially late at night— clomping 
back and forth, up and down. 

Note: The post office requests that students refrain from 
sending so many air mail letters, at least until a few more 
carrier pigeons can be added to the staff. (Regular mail will 
go out, as usual, by Donkey Express.) 

Been wondering what it is that prompts these quick cam- 
pus romances? Well, children, it's not love — it's Laundry. 
Some guys are already being called fickle. Unfair! They're 
just trying to find steady gals who can do their shirts as well 
as Ma used to. Want dates for the prom, ladies? The quickest 
way to a man's heart is via the ironing board. 

We'll be interested to see how registration is divided for 
the mock presidential election to be held on campus. From 
observing outward signs (the ones on dorm windows and in 
the parking lots) and hearing snatches of political opinions 
voiced, we're under the impression that CLC is a Republican 
stronghold. The Demos seem to be militant, though, so who 
knows what the outcome will be? Any comments. Kingsmen?

Student Planning Yields 
Adminstration Backing 

We're waiting to hear from youf 

Geography Trip 

students who survived Dr. 
Curti's recent Physical Geo- 
logy field trip were unanimous 
in their belief that it was "a 
most productive experience." 

Among the things that it 
produced were blisters, torn 
pants, barbed wire scratches, 
and snake bites. When (and 
if) the students recuperate 
from their journey, they will 
attempt to classify the hand- 
fuls of natural flora and rock 
specimens they brought back. 

It is to be hoped that their re- 
ports will be completed soon, 
for some of the participants' 
roommates have discovered 
that they are allergic to such 
substances as Buckwheat and 
dried cactus fibres. 

Students trekked uphill and 
down in the pursuit of know- 
ledge (trying in vain to keep 
up with Dr. Curti's pace). 

Recently, my faith in the clear thinking and good judge- 
ment of our administration has been restored. To this point I 
have heard nothing but negative comments from people with 
negative attitudes on this subject. 

It seems that after a great deal of effort on the part of cer- 
tain Senior Class officers, a plan has been developed for the 
staging of a musical performance in the Hollywood Bowl. 
This is to be a service project with the proceeds from the 
concert forming the class gift. With the support of two fac- 
ulty advisors, the program was accepted after careful con- 
sideration and evaluation on the part of the administration. 
This series of events reveals one thing. 

The people who complain of poor quality of administration 
.are usually those who contribute little or nothing to the gen- 
era well-being of the college. The quality of our administra- 
tion is but a reflection of the amount of effort we as students, 
contribute to make this a better institution of Christian High- 
er Education. 

No administration can act intelligently upon poorly plan- 
ned student proposals characteristic of the p£tst. Perhaps 
this action of the Senior Class is the begirming of a new 
trend toward greater effort on the part of the student body. 

In their action upon this recent proposal, our college hi- 
erarchy has clearly shown that they intend to help us reap 
the greatest benefit from what we contribute.

While gaining much useful in- 
formation about the terrain 
surrounding CLC, members of 
the group were also given an 
insight into the hardships of 
pioneer life, as they hiked 
miles and miles (and miles), 
discovering what it was like 
when walking was the most 
common form of transporta- 

Upon reaching Dodge City, 
a certain breakdown of the 
scientific attitude of the trip 
was evident. Students temp- 
orarily abandoned their search 
for geographic data in favor 
of souvenir hunting in this 
Conejo Valley outpost of tele- 

vision land. One CLC co-ed 
retrieved an empty cartridge 
from the dust of the street — 
"Just think. Matt Dillon might 
have shot this!" 

Despite serious doubts 
aired by some disenchanted 
members of the expedition, 
they did make it back to the 
campus in time (though not in 
shape) for lunch.

"Telstar" Deemed Successful 

The Muuiitclef Auditorium 
was converted to "Telsiar 
Communications Center" last 
Saturday night to host the 
AWS -sponsored Talent Show. 

The decorations centered 
around a model of the Tel - 
star satellite. The 'satellite' 
was suspended mid-stage. 
Blue and red lights played on 
it and reflected from the tin- 
foil stars scattered on the 
backdrop. Identical posters on 
each side of the stage depic- 
ted the Telstar's figure eight 
orbit around the earth. 

To further enhance the 
spacecraft atmosphere, all 
usherettes wore uniform black 
and white blouses. They also 
sported badges designating 
alleged space agency occupa- 
tions, such as "NASA Com- 
munications Expert." 

According to Karen Satrum, 
AWS president. "The first act 
was really great; Owen Nel- 
son spoke and sang it." The 
number, "Sputnik Song." end- 

ed with the statement "... 
We'll either have peace in the 
world, or the world in pieces.' 

Other highlights of the show 
included Anne Wieman's per- 
formance. She did three songs 
from an off-Broadway musical 
hit. called "The Fantasticks" 
-"Try to Remember." "Much 
More." and "Soon It's Gonna 
Rain." The last song was 
done as a duet with Chuck 

Kingsnien Scorr Again 

A mistake by the Kingsmen 
Quartet (Bill Ewing. Karsten 
Lundring. Brian Spafford and 
Jim Bessey) turned out well 
for their first song, Bill 
Ewing developed a frog in his 
throat and could not continue. 
So, at the end of the number, 
he bowed, then turned and 
walked offstage, hoping that 
the rest of the group would 
follow suit. They did, but in 
delayed reaction, one by one. 
The audience, thinking the 
incident, a planned stunt

do their final number. 

General Opinion 

The general opinion of those 
attending was that the Talent 
Show was "very-good." How-

more variety was needed.

This gift to the College, came at 
a time when there was great 
need for such an instrument for 
private instruction and concert 
use. The classic-voiced organ, 
built along the lines ofthe Instru- 
ments of the seventeenth and 
eighteenth centuries, is housed 
in the Mountclef auditorium and 
is used daily during morningcon- 
vocation periods. 

Particularly suited to the per- 
formance of contrapuntal music, 
the instrument has five ranks of 
pipes with a sixth to be added 
in the future. It was build by 
the Abbott and Sieker Building 
Firm of Los Angeles, and design- 
ed by Arthur Moorefleld, a mem- 
ber of the California Lutheran 
College creative arts faculty. 

Carl Swanson, concert organ- 
ist, is a new member of the Col-

University. He also attended the 
New England Conservatory of 
Music and was Director of Music 
and Education, Capitol Drive 
Lutheran Church, Milwaukee, 
prior to Joining the CLC faculty.

TUCSON, Ariz. a.P.)— Thenew 
program for student teachers 
in secondary education at the 
University of Arizona combines 
ail the student's method courses 
and student teaching in one sem- 
ester. Under the new program, 
called the "professional sem. 
ester," the student has the op- 
portunity to observe his pupils 
before he starts student teach- 

The semester is worth 14 units 
and trains students in their spe- 
ciallzed fields. In the past, stu- 
dent teachers have taken their 
method courses during the jun • 
ior year and then have begun 
student teaching the senior year. 
The first six weeks of the pro- 
fessional semester is devoted 
to general methods, special me- 
thods, and visitation and obser- 

In general methods (lV'2 hours 
daily), teaching techniques, 
classroom organization and man- 
agement, ues of classroom ma- 
terials and organization oflearn- 
ing experiences are taught. Spe- 
cial methods C1V2 hours dally) 
deals with the organization of 
subject matter In a special 
field. Professors from various 
departments iifstruct these 

While the material Is fresh 
in his mind, the student teacher 
spends eight weeks in student 
teaching. Under this system, the 
student teactiSr does not have to 
attend method courses at the 

University while he is teaching, 
as has been the procedure in 
the past. 

In visitation and observation, 
the student teacher spends three 
hours dally attending the class- 
es which he will teach later 
that semester. He then becomes 
acquainted with dally routine, 
school policies and school ad- 

The system enables the student 
to become a regular high school 
faculty member, attending PTA, 
faculty meetings, student govern- 
ment meetings, and to partici- 
pate in school activities. 

The student teacher starts in- 
structing one class and gradually 
works up to leaching three or 
more classes a day. He has the 
opportunity of viewing grade 
levels other than the one he Is 
teaching. After student teaching, 
there is a three-week seminar. 
It is held daily and Is planned 
to discuss such things as phil- 
osophies of education, getting 
jobs, signing contracts, liability

Hemingway Novel Explored 
"A Moveable Feast" 

by John Moreland 
ECHO Literary Editor 

"A Moveable Feast" by 
Ernest Hemingway, Charles 
Scrlbner's Sons, 1964, 211 p. 

When one begins reading the 
memiors of a famous writer. It 
is in a state of mind somewhat 
similar to beginning the mature 
work of a writer whose early 
books enchanted him, yet he is 
afraid that he will be disappoint- 
ed in the mature work. But I 
must admit that there was none 
of this in my approach of "A 
Moveable Feast" for I have 
never been an admirer of Ernest 
Hemingway. I have been repel- 
led from his books because there 
was always the feeling that they 
were popular, not because they 
were goodbooks.butbecausethey 
were written by Ernest Heming- 
way, the Illustrious personality. 
It must be stated, however, that 
this book has merits of its own. 

of teachers, membership in 
teaching organizations and job 

Also, during these three weeks, 
the student has classroom ob- 
servation three hours daily. 
There he observes team teach- 
ing, teaching machines and teach- 
ing English as a secondary lang- 

"It (the program) will find the 
students' strengths and weak- 
nesses, In order that we may 
help them overcome their weak- 
nesses," commented Dr. Jerald 

Reece, associate professorof ed- 
ucation and coordinator of the 
new program. Student teachers 
who have been trained by this 
method endorse it, according to 
a survey made by Dr. Reece. 
Some of the views: 
"A concise program. You know 
where you're going and how 
you're getting there," 

"A more realistic view of teach- 
ing life." 

"Provides more opportunity to 
discuss pertinent questions." 

On the title page of the book 
there is a quotation from a tet- 
ter that Hemingway wrote to a fri- 
end in 1950 which reads; "If 
you are lucky enough to have 
lived in Paris as a young man, 
then whereever you go for the 
rest of your life, it stays with 
you, for Paris Is a moveable 
feast." This is an appropriate 
description of the Paris that Hem- 
ingway is writtlng about on these 
pages, for it is certainly a 
feast. The sketches glitter with 
such names as Ezra Pound, Ger- 
trude Stein, and Scott Fitzgerald, 
to mention a few, poets and 
writers who all inhabited Paris 
in the twenties. 

Though for the most part the 
style of the book is as someone 
says to Hemingway, ". . . too 
stripped, too lean," "A Move-, 
able Feast" will be of great 
interest to those interested in the 
life of Hemingway and those 
people living in "the town best 
organized for a writer to write 
in," Paris. 

Although the book Is primarily 
about the author's life, it Is these 
"secondary" characters which 
lend vitality to "A Moveable 
Feast." The sketches devoted 
to Fitzgerald, though strictly 
narrative and Journalistic in 
style, are a magnificent des- 
cription of a writer suffering 
from many ailments, both psy. 
chological and physiological. 
Hemingway prefaces the first 
sketch of Fitzgerald thus:"His 
talent was as natural as the pat> 
tern that was made by the dust 
on a butterfly's wings. At one 
time he understood it no more 
than the butterfly did and he did 
not know when it was brushed or 
marred. Later he bacame con- 
scious of his damaged wings and 
of their construction and he 
learned to think and could not fly 
any more because the love of 
flight was gone and he could only 
remember when it had been 

"A better grasp of the meaning 
of being a teacher."

Organizations Present Opportunity 
For Students To Work In Europe 

Would you like to spend a sum- 
mer in Europe? If so, don't think 
you'll have to spend the next 
few years saving pennies. You' 
can go this year, at little or no 
cost to you in terms of money. 

Naturally, there's ahitchinthe 
plan. No one we know of Is going 
to just hand you a vacation In 
Europe. But, there are at least 
two organizations operating for 
the sole purpose of getting young 
Americans into Europe duringthe 

These two organizations, the

The opportunities are unlimit-

than a hundred dollars, and even 
this amount could be negated. Ex*

Echo Will Begin Series On 
State And Local History 

An informal poll on campus re- 
vealed that many CLC students 
know little or nothing of Cali- 
fornia history. We feel this fact 
should be remedied, since the 
history of California is an exci- 
ting and entertaining chain of 
euents. Therefore beginning with 
this issue, the ECHO will in-

California Joins the Union 

California is a rarity among 
western states. It underwent no 
probationary period as a terri- 
tory; statehood was the object 
from the time the Mexicans were 
ousted, and statehood swiftly 
came about. 

In and prior to 1846, the Mexi- 
can flog flew over California. It 
was hauled down and replaced by 
the Stars and Stripes that year, 

during the war with Mexico. The 
Mexicans capitulated at Cohuen-

ga in 1847. and the war was of- 
fically concluded by the Treaty 
of Guadalupe Hidalgo in Febru- 
ary, 1848. 

That year. 1848. was when 
James Marshall found gold at 
Sutter's Mill, and that didn't 
hurt statehood chances, although 
the move had begun before the 
gold rush. 

Statehood for California was 
caught up in the problem facing 
the entire nation: Slavery. And 
California, in its constitutional 
convention at Monterey in 1849, 
wrote into that document "Nei- 
ther slavery nor invduntary ser- 
vitude, unless for the punishment 
of crimes, shall ever be tolera- 
ted in this state." 

There were already 30 states 
in the Union, 15 slave and 15 
free. Because the admission of 
California would tip the scales 
for freedom, it was the subject of 
mammoth debate in the Senate. 
The rafters rang with heated ora- 
tory, but the California Bill- 
a major compromise— was passed 
by Congress September 7, 1850. 

Two days later, President 
Fillmore signed the bill and thus 
the ninth of September is cole- 
bnited us the birth of "'the Gold- 
en State."

KINGSMFN DEFENSE . , . closes in to make the slop on a hard 
running Claremont bach. After looking good in the first quarter, 
the CLC gridders gave way to Claremont in the following three. 
The final score was a lopsided 28-13. 

CLC Basketball Squads 
Begin Season Practice 

With the football season only 
half over, basketball has begun 
Its climb to the top of the sports 

Coach John Siemens opened 
practice l^st Monday with a nu- 
cleus of ten returning letter- 

Added experience and increa- 
sed size should help the Kings- 
men have a fine year even though 
the schedule has thoughened from 
that of previous years, ticluded 
in this year's schedule will be

dena Nazarene, and Southern Ne- 

Pitman Frosh Coach 

Coach Bob Pitman, who hand- 
eled the junior varsity part of 
last season will assist Coach 
Siemens with the varsity while 
coaching the freshmen squad. 

The frosh, which started prac- 
tice one week ahead of the var- 
sity, had ten future varsity hope- 
fuls with more expected when 
football season ends. 

Both squads will concentrate 
on conditioning for the next few 
weeks. This year's conditioning 
program includes "Isometrics," 
a newly developed way of build- 
Each man will also be expected 
to run a mandatory six minute 
mile. " 

Any men interested in basket- 
ball for the upcoming inter-col- 
legiate season should contact ei- 
ther Coach Siemens, or Coach 
Pitman immediately. 

The battle of the C's will be 
tomorrow as the Klngsmen travel 
to Colorado College to face the 

Last week the Klngsmen were 
dumped by Claremont 28-13 on 
the Stags field. 

In the first quarter CLC domin- 
ated play rolling through the Stag 
defense to a 7-0 lead. Heads up 
plays made the Klngsmen look as 
if they would end their two game 
losing string. But in the second 
quarter the roof fell in as the 
Stag offensive unit led by the pas- 
sing and running of quarterFrank 
Kelsey, scored two touchdowns 
with a combination of short 
passes and end sweeps. 

The start of the second half with 
the Stags leading 14-7, saw the 
Klngsmen move the ball within 
the Stags 10 yard line, but a tough 
defensive wall stopped the Kings- 
men cold. 

From here on out It was all 
Claremont's game as they domin- 
ated the second half much the 
same way as In the second 

CLC will try to break Its three 
game losing streak as they face 
the Tigers tomorrow. The Kings- 
men will have to be up for this 
game as Colorado has some fine 
players. Approximately 60 men 
turned out for practice with half 
being sophomores who played 
varsity ball last year. Lack of 
experience may hurt the Tigers 
but these men are said to be 
the biggest underclassmen team 
in Colorado's history. Fifteen 
lettermen also returned. 

This will be the second meet- 
ing of the two teams as the Kings- 
men will be trying to avenge a 
19-16 loss to the Tigers on Mt. 
Clef field last year. 

Leading ground gainer, Bob 
Trevathan, who was sidelined 
in the Claremont game due to an 
injury Is expected to be back in 
the lineup for the game tomorrow. 

Personality Crucial In 
Athletic Competition 

Looking through my files this past weeklhave come across 
an article which was circulated in athletic circles last year. 
However, this article has a message for everyone not just 
athletes. For this reason it will appear in this column. 

The article Is entitled "How We Defeat Ourselves." It 
was written by Sidney J. Harris and is taken from the Chicago 
Dally News, August 7, 1962. 

"Watching the National Clay Courts tennis tournament re- 
cently, I saw a player come within one point of winning his 
match. He lost the druclal point, and his opponent finally came 
from far behind to win the match. 

From where I sat, It seemed clear to me that the player 
who lost had really beaten himself. His game was at least as 
good as his opponent's; his strokes were clean, his footwork 
agile, his strategy sensible. But It was his own temperment 
that finally broke him. 

When he lost a point, he blamed himself. On a close de- 
cision, he scowled darkly at the umpire. When the breaks 
went against him, he forgot that his opponent had bad breaks, 
too. He was an unattractive personality. 

Occasionally they may be beaten; but they never beat them- 
selves. And over the long pull, they win more often than they 
lose — and they win in many cases, by simply allowing their 
opponents to beat themselves. 

It has been my unwavering observation over the years 
that 90 per cent of us beat ourselves. Nobody else does it to 
us. we beat ourselves In various ways — by too much confi- 
dence, or by too little; by blaming the other person, or by blam- 
ing ourselves; by too much pessimism when thongs look good, 
winners have is an absence of the "blameworthy" sense. They 
do not pout when others are at fault, and they do not rage at 
themselves when they are at fault. 

Why nature gives an equable temperment to some and 
not to others Is a mystery we can never solve. But I am con- 
vinced that it is temperment, more than talent or brains, that 
determines whether we are self-fulfilling or self -destroying. 
The difference between one champion and another may be 
trifling in terms of pure ability; It may be vast in terms of 

We hear a great deal about the so-called "killer-instinct" 
in champions; and the reason one man failed to reach the ulti- 
mate goal was his lacic of this killer Instinct. 

All this means, I think Is that In the ultimate crisis the real 
champion forgets himself entirely and concentrates with a pas- 
sionate ferocity upon his object. In the zen term, '*the archer, 
the arrow, and the target are one." The "near -champion" 
never forgets himself, never subdues himself to the object, 
never genuinely subordinates himself to the game. 

It Is not the Instinct to kill, or even to conquer, but the 
instinct for perfection — a perfection so exquisite in itself that 
It obliterates the man who Is achieving It. He Is beyond praise, 
beyond blame, beyond all our sublunary ambitions. He does 
not beat himself, for he does not fight himself; rather, he for- 
gets himself in an almost holy game."

Grid Spirit Weakened 
By Meager Attendance 

The sports season fs now fully 
underway. We have had a few- 
bad breaks but the team, on the 
whole, has looked good. The ball- 
players have been working their 
hearts cut, doing a good job 
for C.L.C. 

Pep and enthusiasm within the 
student body has been good to 
this point. A Pep Band has been 
doing a tremendous job. The Pep 
Commission, which meets every 
Tuesday night at 6:30 in the gym, 
has been thinking of many new 
Ideas to create spirit. The song- 
leaders have been working very 
hard and everyone has seen the 
results at the games. The cheer, 
leaders have taught us some new 
yells and are doing a bang-up 

With all these people working 
hard toward creating spirit, we 
should -have the greatest cheer- 
ing section In the country! But, 
do we? There has been some- 
thing lacking, but what is It? 
One major problem is lack of 
attendance. The PepCommisslon 
has been authorized to go out 
and buy a pair of scissors for 
each member of the commis- 
sion, I am sure this will cure 
the attendance problem. Every 
day next week, the members 
of the Pep Commission are go- 
ing to sneak up behind the fresh- 
men from the L.A. area and snip 
off the apron strings. We are 
also going to write to their homes 
and tell their mothers that their 
son or daughter Is away at col- 
lege this year. 

It Is not hard to tell which 

are the more mature freshmen: 
they are here on weekends! They 
are also the ones that do the 
least com|>laIning alwut not hav- 
Ing anything to do on weekends 
except go home to their high 
school Luther League meetings. 

Say, I've got a great idea! 
Let's all stay on campus next 
weekend and go to the game 
with George Fox College. Let's 
root real hard through the entire 
game and see If we can "con- 
scientiously object" to our 
"Friends" from Oregon and send 
those Quakers back to making 
oatmeal. Everyone will see then 
that C.L.C, isn't a ghost town 
during the weekends. 

The next weekend, Oct. 30th, 
the Kingsmen play their second 
Rose Bowl game in two years. 
We will have rooter buses go- 
ing In fUll force along with many 
cars that are going to be auc- 
tioned off to the girls. Hey guys, 
this Is a good chance to have 
gas paid to the game and \vith 
all those girls In the car, the 
old adage, "you never can tell 
how things will work out" really 
means something. See Eddie 
KeesIIng if interested in auction- 
ing off seats in your car. 

The weekend of November 6, 
7, and 8th promises to be one 
of the most exciting of the whole 
year, A full weekend trip Is 
planned to San Francisco for the 
Cal, State at Hayward game. We 
will be leaving here in air-condl- 
tloned buses late Friday evening, 
reaching San Francisco and our 
motel on Saturday morning. We 
will go see our victory at Cal, 
State at 1:30 that afternoon, then 
come back to downtown San Fran- 
cisco, The night will be free 
until 2:00 a.m, Sunday morning 
we will all go to the same church 
then head home. The entire trip's 
cost will be In the neighbor- 
hood of twenty dollars. This price 
includes bus trip, food, and mo- 
tel for the weekend. Let's really 
have a crowd up there and 
everyone will have a good time 
guaranteed, VVe will be collect- 
ing down payments next week, 
so we will know how many buses 


characteristic of the tough 
Occidental team. The CLC 
gridders found the Claremont 
defense no easier to pene- 

trate. After their loss to Clare- 
mont last week, our eleven 
will attempt to end Uieir tliree 
game losing streak when fac- 
ing Colorado College in an

lors), and the Marauders (Fresh- 
men), all have three wins against 
no losses. 

Sunday's best fought game was 
probably the Marauders vs. the 
Purple (Sophmores). The Fresh, 
men team, with a lot of hustle, 
beat the larger and favored Soph* 
more team 18-0. The Freshmen 
led only 2-0 at the half, on a 
safety. In the second half the 
Marauders' offense clicked on a 
touchdown pass by Tom Miller* 
man to Chris Gasllnger. Miller- 
man also passed for the extra 
point and later in the 4th quar- 
ter ran back an interception for 
a T,D, The only other scoring 
was a second safety, exempli- 
fying the fast rush of the Fresh- 
men team. Both teams did play 
well though, the Purple's Butch 
Kempfert and the Marauders* 
MlUerman being the most out- 

The Elephant Racers won over 
their counterpart Junior team, 
the Tortillas, 26-7. The game 
was dominated by the Zimmer- 
man brothers, Chuck and Steve, 
as they each passed for two 
T.D.'S and an extra point. Prob- 
ably most outstanding though, was 
their favorite receiver Denny 
Borak who caught two TJ), pass- 
es. The Tortillas' lone TJD. came 
on a pass from Pete Olson to 
Al Rodgers, 

The other undefeated team, the 
Lanternmen, won on a forfeiture 
from the Sophmore's Gold team. 
This eliminates the Gold team 

from competition as this 
their second forfeiture. 


In another game played Sunday 
the Tartars (Freshmen) and 
Knights (Seniors), played Inacon. 
test which saw the Knights win 
their first game. The Tartars, 
who have yet to win, scored 6 
points to the Knights* 20. The 
Senior team scored most of their 
points on passing. Eric Schafer 
threw two TJ). passes, one to 
Dale Goodrow and another to 
Bryan Spafford. Schafer was on 
the receiving end of a pass by 
Goodrow for the third T.D. The 
extra points came on a run by 
Dan Fhllllppl and another pass 
from Schafer to Goodrow, The 
lone TJJ. by the Freshmen 
Tartars came on a pass from 
Schrelber to Samuel, Although the 
score didn't show It, this was 
a hard fought game, Schafer and 
Goodrow belngoutstandingforthe 
Knights while Schrfeit>er and Ken. 
nington stood out for the Tartar 

Next Sunday's action sees the 
Marauders go against the Ele- 
phant Racers at 2:00 p.m. in a 
battle of the unbeatens. The other 
two o'clock game schedules the 
Purple(l-2) against the Kinghts 
(1-2), At 3:30 theTortmas(1.2) 
go up against the strong and un- 
beaten Lanternmen.The Tartars 
(0-3) draw a win as a result 
of the Gold team being dropped 
from the league. The thing to 
watch for Sunday would be the Ma- 
rauder - Elephant game which 
promises to be a close one.

Campus Political Debate 
Reveals GOP Strength 

Recently, politically minded Kingsmen were given the 
opportunity to witness the first political debate in the brief 
history of CLC. The two Republican representatives were 
Carl Anderson and George Chesney while the Democratic 
supporters were Joel Pinkerton and Chris Salminen The "im- 
partial" moderator for the morning's note of political humor 
was Dave Anderson. 

Both the Democratic and Republican sides opened the de- 
bate by defining their points of view. The debate progressed 
to the topic of states rights when Mr. Chesney asserted that 
the Federal government was infringing upon the rights of the 
states. Mr. Pinkerton sprang to his party's defense by quoting 
the Constitution on States Rights while Mr. Salminen rein- 
forced the position by stating that the Federal government 
must enter into States rights in some areas, but neglected to 
state what areas. Up to now. it seems that the government 
has been doing a remarkable job of lessening state power in 
favor of Federal control. 

Mr. Chesney attacked the President's "War on Poverty 
Program" as a typically Soclialist program. This brought a 
roar of agreement from the Republican section of the audito- 
rium, which considerably outnumbered the Democratic sec- 
tion. Mr. Salminen weakly defended the program by stating 
that he would rather be termed a socialist than see his fellow 
man plagued by want and inferior conditions. Perhaps he has 
the right idea. Perhaps we should all sit around and let the 
government support us. 

Mr. Chesney charged that Senator Humphrey was described 
by the Democrats for American Action as a Fabian Socialist 
and that Norman Thomas, a recognized Socialist, stated that 
many of the President's proposals are obviously socialistic 
in concept, and that he is in complete agreement with them. 
Not to be outdone by the Republicans, Mr. Salminen retorted 
by charging Senator Goldwater with extremism and indecisive- 
ness. He asserted that the Republican Presidential nominee 
changed his stand on extremism three times from the time he 
was nominated, elected party candidate, and the week follow- 
ing his election. This brought a violently negative reaction 
from the Republican section as well as the four students rep- 
resenting the John Birch Society. 

After the meeting had been opened to student questions, a 
number of leading questions were fired at the party representa- 
tives. Tim "Tex" Allspach asked what the President had 
done about Billy Sol Estes and Bobby Baker and demanded. 
"How did Johnson get his Senate seat if he didn't steal it?" 
At this time, and before the Democrats could defend their 
position, "impartial" moderator Anderson closed the debate 
by calling time. Had he allowed these questions to be an- 
swered, it would have been the first time they had been an- 
swered in the history of the campaign.

We're wailing to hear from you! 


Have you noticed that time 
seetns to pass strangely here? 
We find Ihat Wednesday definitely 
follows Sunday, Thursday always 
feels like !- riday. Monday is in 
a category all liy itself — no man's 

It never falls; if you're the 
type who prefers your room cave- 
like (dark and cool) your room- 
mate is some kind of sunlight 
addict. Or, if there are 3 to 5 
people in tlie room there are 3 
to 5 differing opinions on correct 
room temperature. One could 
undoubtedly find a direct relation- 
ship between the number of stu- 
dents with colds and the battle 
of the air-conditioners.

This is the third issue of the ECHO to appear this semes- 
ter. As of press time, there have been no letters to the editor 
submitted from the student body. At this time the staff of the 
Mountclef ECHO is attempting to determine reasons for this. 

This situation suggests two primary possible causes. The 
first is the most improbable. Could it be that all the students 
currently attending CLC enjoy every aspect of campus life? 
Perhaps there is no dissatisfaction on our campus at all. 
This fact would make our campus singularly unique, for I 
know of no other college or university in the United States 
that pleases all of its students all of the time. 

The second cause points to a situation that has been 
fought by student leaders for a number of semesters: that of 
student apathy. It would appear that the majority of students 
on our campus just do not care about what happens here. 
They come seeking an education, yet refuse to venture from 
their own small and insignificant worlds. We realize that 
students of this type do not have the maturity to express an 
opinion, therefore we do not hold them responsible. 

Now that we have recognized the problem, and have deter- 
mined the possible causes, there ought to be a logical solu- 
tion to the problem. Try this one. Those of you who care to 
take more than a passing interest in the college community of 
which you are a part, and who have an opinion or critical ev- 
aluation of your campus community, submit it to the ECHO. 
This may encourage a numl)cr of the more apathetic students 
to emerge from the shells with some new and fresh ideas. 

Letters to the editor for the next issue should be submitted 
and signed to Box 1264 on or Iwfore October 23.

A plea has been entered by 
girls' dorm officers about the 
door alarms. Please be more 
careful, ladies . . . next time 
Carol Carfagno stubs atoeonher 
way down to check when one goes 
off, there's going to be trouble. 

Sorry to hear that the proposed 
finale for the Talent Show had to 
be completely re-vamped. Too 
bad, after all the work that was 
done on the set, a Roman arena. 
IJnforlunately, none of the faculty 
members would volunteer to take 
part in the skit, (they were 
slated to play the Christians.) 

Haven't had many politically 
oriented comments regarding the 
final item in last issue's 
few nasty looks from young demo- 
crats on campus. 

An unusual experience: walk- 
ing by the practice rooms at night 
and listening to a kind of musical 
collate. Except for an occasional 
sour note, the combination of the 
night and the music is mostplea- 

Recently, a Klngsman was 
heard complaining about his men. 
ial part-time job: "To do this 
I need to have a college edu- 
cation?" A co-worker's reply 
was succinct: "No, but to have 
a college education, you need to 
do this I" 

Seems that not all the world 
loves a lover. "Why," some 
Kingsmen wonder, "can't the 
true romances on campus find 
more private places to express 
their emotions? The bottlenecks 
at the dorm doors and the traf- 
fic hazards on the lawns are be- 
coming ridiculous." We can only 
surest that those concerned witJi 
this situation look up exhibition- 
ism in any dictionary.

Dr. Bright Lectures Here 

Dr. John Bright, outstand- 
ing author, public speaker, 
and authority in the field of 
theology, ends his current vi- 
sit on campus today. 

His lecture series during 
the week have included a 
President's Convocation on 
Tuesday. Oct. 27, evening 
lectures Tuesday. Wednes- 
day and Thursday, and this 
morning's Reformation Ser- 
vice which was held in the 
gym - auditorium, as were all 

the other lectures. The top- 
ics of Dr. Bright's lectures 
centered around the theme 
of "The Old Testament-A 
Problem to Christians"'— Sug- 
gested Solutions to the Pro- 
blem—Its Authority— and Pro-

the college community. 

A Cryus McCormick Profes- 
sor of Hebrew and the Inter- 

Sadie Goes Witch Way 

One of the most anticipated 
dances of the year is rapidly 
approaching. October 31st 
marks the date for the fourth 
annual Sadie Hawkins Dance, 
to be held this year at the 
CLC gymnasium. 

A "girls ask guys" dance, 
the Sadie offers an opportunity 
for the girls to bring along a 
guy and learn how it feels to 
be in the command position of 
a date situation. Girls must 
buy the bids. $1.50 per couple 
provide the corsage, and re- 
port to the Mountclef foyer to 
ask for their date. And how 
about being on time. Well, 
girls, the tables are turned.

Debaters Try 
Out Skills 

California Lutheran College 
fared well in their first Novice 
Debate competition, in a tour- 
nament held at U.C.L.A. two 
weeks ago. CLC debaters. 
Jim McDonald and Pritz 
Maerkle. wound up the com- 
petition' with a 2-2 record. 
The vocal entanglement ended 
with CLC victors over Pierce 
College and Bakersfield Col- 
lege. The Kingsmen orators 
dropped decisions to Clare- 
mont College and Harbor Col- 
lege, both of whom maintained 
a 4-0 record for the tourna- 

Abner and Daisy Mae. who 
reign as the king and queen of 
the event. The candidates are 
selected from Alpha and Beta 
dorms, and the final choice is 
decided by ballot. Those cho- 
sen this year from the dorms 
are, for Daisy Mae: Terri Har- 
inen. Sue Hope, Carol Virak, 
and Bev Newhouse. For the 
honor of Lil Abner, Steve Ped- 
erson. Al Aronson, Steve Su- 
therland and Paul Meyer will 
be competing. 

Bev Newhouse is the chait^ 
man of the dance this year, 
heading a committee which 
has already planned the nec- 
essary details for the dance. 
Working with Bev are Carolyn 
Larson. Jan Hutchins, Dede 
Herbst. Janet Monson, Sharon 
Rorem. Lois Duea, Joan Ship- 
ley, Joan Eggen, Dinah Korb, 
Leslie Boone, Bev Sheets and 
Lois Hendrix. 

The theme for the Sadie, to 
be held on Halloween night, 
is "Sadie Goes Witch Way." 
Refreshments will also re- 
flect upon this idea, and dec- 
orations are planned to encon- 
pass both the theme of Sadie, 
and the fun of Halloween 

Approximate dress for the 
dance is that which is com- 
fortable, casual and some- 
what "grubby." One precau- 
tion is urged in the footwear 
department: tennies, bare feet 
or socks must be worn to pro- 
tect the floor for the upcoming 
basketball season. No street 
shoes will be allowed. 

If you have not already done 
so girls, ask a guy soon. 


Representatives of the U.S. Air Force Recruiting Office, 
Oxnard, will visit the campus Monday, November 2, for stu-

the Air Force offers to college students who have graduated. 
Arrangements may also be made to take the qualifying tests 
in the future. 

Interview times will be arranged at a desk in the Coffee

At the age of 18 Alexandra 
Tolstoy became the secretary 
and companion of her father, 
and remained so until his 
death in 1910 at the age of 70. 
Leo Tolstoy bequeathed to his

literary works. She edited all 
his unpublished works, sold

her remaining rights to his 
works and gave them into the 
public domain. 

During the Revolution in 
Russia, Countess Tolstoy pro- 
tested against the Communist 
tyranny, and was consequently 
put in jail. After her release, 
she taught school. In 1931 she 
left Russia under the pretext 
of giving lectures in Japan, 
and came to the United States 
where she worked as a farmer 
until 1939. She then devoted 
all her time to the Tolstoy 
Foundation, which she and 
some friends founded to assist 
refugees from Soviet Russia 
and other countries, victims of 
Communist oppression. Today 
the Foundation has 14 offices 
in 10 countries of Europe and 
the Middle East, where thou- 
sands of refugees are being 
helped to support themselves 
in a new country of asylum, 
or to move to another country 
of immigration. The foundation 
has a 72 acre farm-resettle-

to help newcomers take their 
first steps in America.

Health Service Effects New 
Accident -Illness Insurance 

A Student Accident and Sick- 
ness Medical Expense Insurance 
Plan has recentLv been initiated 
for CLC students. The purpose 
of this plan is to assist the stu- 
dent in alleviating the unexpected 
and often severe medical and hos- 
pital expenses arising from an 
accident or prolonged illness. 

The plan has been specifically 
designed with the protection of 
CLC students in mind and is un- 
derwritten by the Zurich Insur- 
ance Company of Chicago, Illi- 
nois. The management and ad- 
ministration of the plan is han- 
dled by Fergus and Associates, 
specialists in student insurance, 
Los Angeles. California. 

All full time students who have 
paid the Student Health Fee are 
automatically enrolled in the 
plan. The cost of the plan is in- 
cluded in that fee. Other students 
can obtain the coverage by pay- 
ment of the Standard Student 
Health Fee. 

Worldwide coverage is provided 
on a 24 hour a day basis, at 
home, at college, or while travel- 

ing during the entire period tor 
which the premium is paid. The 
plan became effective September 

1. 1964. Benefits become effec- 
tive upon payment of the Student 
Health Fee. 

Major Hospital Expenses 

When an insured incurs medical 
expense resulting from accidental 
injury while the policy is in force 
or requires medical treatment for 
illness, contracted and commenc- 
ing while the policy is in force, 
the Insurance Company will pay 
for such medical expense actually 
incurred within a 26 week period 
according to the following sched- 
ule of benefits. 

When the insured incurs ex- 
penses for hospital confinement 
the Insurance Company will pay 
up to $750.00 per iojury or sick- 
ness for: 1. Hospital room and 
boaid, not to exceed per day. the 
usual 3-bed ward room charge. 

2. Necessary Miscellaneous Hos- 
pital Expenses such as pre- 
scribed drugs, dressings, blood 
and blood plasma, laboratory 

N.S.F. Honors CLC 
With Chemistry Grants 

California Lutheran College 
has been distinctly honored 
through the granting of two 
National Science Founda- 
tion matching grants in chem- 
istry. The matching grants 
total $7,500 and must be ut- 
ilized over a period of two 
academic years. 

The purpose of such grants, 
by the National Science 
Foundation, is to assist in- 
stitutions that have received 
the approval of the committee 
on grants, to develop their 
projected development pro- 
grams. Such approval is only 
obtained after a very vareful 
examination of institutional 
potentials have been enacted. 

The fact that the Science and 
Mathematics division, through 
one of its disciplines, was 
awarded the grants, connota- 
tes a stamp of approval on 
the Division's projected de- 
velopment program. 

The grants involve obtain- 
ing specific items of equip- 
ment for the Chemistry disci- 
pline. As such equipment is 
purchased by the college, the 
National Science _Poundation 
reimburses the college to the 
total of one half the involved 
cost. Such an arrangement 
makes possible the obtain- 
ance of equipment costing 
$15,000 for a college invol- 
vement of only $7,500. 

CLC Campus Community 
Stages Mock Election 

Last Tuesday. October 27. 
California Lutheran College 
cast its vote for the respec- 
tive candidates of the Repub- 
lican and Democratic parties. 
The mock election took place 
in the Mountclef Inn foyer 
from 10:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. 
Everyone on campus was in- 
vited to vote, including stu- 
dents, faculty, administration, 
and employees, in order to get 
a true picture of the political 
trend on campus. The mock 
of the student political debate 
ft few weeks before. 

It is doubtfull whether ei- 
ther the debate or the election 
will have any significance on 
the national scene but it was 
felt that it would give the po- 
litical standing on the Califor- 
nia Lutheran College campus 
and perhaps increase the stu- 

dent body's interest in poli- 
tics and encourage those stu- 
dents who are of voting age to 
cast their ballots in the na- 
tional election on November 3. 
Jim Tschida and Mary Jurgen- 
son are to be congratulated 
for their work in organizing 
this meritorious event.

esthetics, and x-rays. 3. Services 
of a registprp/l graduate Nurse. 

4. Dental treatment to sound nat- 
ural teeth if caused by accident, 

5. Use of professional ambulance 
service. 6. Doctor's calls to a 
maximum of $5,00 per day. 

Surgical Benefits 

When an insured requires a. 
surgical operation, as a result of 
injury or sickness, the surgeon's 
fee will be paid according to a 
schedule of fees, up to a maxi- 
mum of $250.00. In the event an 
anesthetist's fee is not charged 
by the hospital but by an outside 
anesthetist, the Insurance Com- 
pany will Day the expense actual- 
ly incurred but not to exceed the 
maximum amount applicable to 
the operation performed as pro- 
vided in the schedule of fees. 

When an insured receives in- 
jury to sound natural teeth as the, 
result of an accident which oc- 
curs while insured under the pol- 
icy, the Insurance Company will 
pay for such expense up to a max- 
imum of $75.00 for all teeth as 
the result of one accident. 


This policy does not cover the 
expense of: Medical services pro- 
vided or available to the insured 
through the Student Health Ser- 
vice which he is able to utilize: 
Dental treatment, except in the 
previously mentioned CEtses; ser- 
vices rendered by the college in- 
firmary, infirmary employees or 
salaried physicians of the college 
for which no charge would be 
made in the absence of insurance; 
replacing eyeglasses or prescrip- 
tions thereof: preventive medi 
cines or vaccines: suicide or any 
attempt threat; cosmetic surgery, 
except as the result of a covered 
injury; confinement within or 
treatmert rendered in any Federal 
Government or Veterans* Adminis- 
tration taciiity; pregnancy, child- 
birth, or miscarriage, aviation 
accidents except to passengers 
on scheduled, commercial air- 
lines: declared or undeclared war. 
or any act thereof: injury incurred 
as the result of play or practice 
of intercollegiate sports or var- 
sity team athletics, as these are 
covered under separate policy 
issued to the college; any ex- 
pense due to psychiatric care, 
insanity, or mental disorders; 
and any expense which is 
payable under any Workmen's 
Compensation law or Act. 

It is not the intent of the 
policy to cover existing, reg- 
ularly treated chronic illnes- 
ses or injuries which had 
their inception prior to the 
effective date of the cover-

Wagner Sees Importance In 
A Knowledge of Theology 

"In order to understand the 
possibilities that face one in 
the future, and in order to un- 
derstand the situations that 
confront one in the present, it 
is imperative to know the past, 
shaped by Hebrew and Christ- 
ain influences," maintains 
Pastor Walter Wagner, Profes. 
sor of Theology and Philoso- 
phv at CLC. 

Professor Wagner feels that 
students and laymen who fail 
to study both the Old and New 
Testaments cannot call them- 
selves truly educated. "In the 
Bible," he explains, "are the 

interesting and entertaining 
experience as well as a valua- 
ble learning situation. 

In 1963 he came to California 
Lutheran as assistant profes- 
sor in theology and philoso- 
phy. Prior to that. Professor 
Wagner served for three years 
as pastor of the Calvary Lu- 
theran Church in Canford, New 

Born in Germany, he traveled 
to America with his family in 
February. 1936. He worked his 
way through Gettysburg Col- 
lege and the Lutheran Theolo- 
gical Seminary in Philadelphia 
at such jobs as grocery clerk, 
dishwasher, gardener, and re- 
creation worker. While at col- 

lege he won the school's high- 
est honors in philosophy and 
class honors at graduation. He 
was also granted two - year 
fellowships for graduate study ' 
by the Lutheran Church in Am- 

Professor Wagner's family 
includes his parents, who live 

in New York State and a bro- 
ther who is employed by the 
secret service in Washington, 
D.C. His wife Deborah is head 
Librarian at the Conejo Library 
in Thousand Oaks. Mrs. Wag-

Toda Rata by Nikos Kazant- 
zakis, Simon and Schuster, New 
York. 1964. pp. 220. 

When Lawrence Durrell lists 
the outstanding writers of the 
time, he lists Nikos Kazantzakis 
as the best from Greece. This 
may be true but the term "writer" 
seems out of place for this man 
is trueiy a poet, a visionary of 
the highest order. His The Last 
Temptation of Christ has been 
much discussed and his The Od- 
yssey: A Modem Sequel is a mas- 

In Toda Raba we have one of 
Kazantzakis' minor works, but 
one of his most prohhetic. It was 
written in 1929 following his 
second ^ visit to Russia. On his 
first journey he had been excited 
by the "idea" which he found 
blazing there. But on his second 
visit his enthusiasm was some- 
what less because the country 
had begun to rebuild itself after 
the devastating revolution end 
the "Idea" was no longer burn- 
ing in such devastating propor- 
tions. He became aware that the 
"Idea" was moving elsewhere. 
He could see that it was not Rus- 
sia which was the hope of the 
world, but that it was Africa and 
the rest of Asia. 

Toda Raba presents the world's 
civilizations gravitating to Rus- 
sia in the forms of many varying 
individuals. They discuss the re- 
volution from many angles but it 
becomes clear that none of them 
represent the future— they are all

Most of us have a mental

existed before the Gold Rush

But the recorded history of

away 316 years before that,

out over the deficiencies in-

The plajf-within-a-play is at 
best an awkward device, and 
"Joan" was no exception. It 
was in many instances a be-

Mary Jane Putz as Joan, one 
which brought the maid from 
Domremy, with all the pathos,

playing the supposedly repre-

the evil, self-seeking adviser 
to the Dauphin.

Scapegoat H. Teethy 
Trying For Comeback 


MARY JANE PUTZ.... render- 
ed an outstanding performance 
in the first CLC drama produc- 
tion this year. Playing the ti- 
tle role of "Joan of Lorraine", 
her dramatic talent and ability 

greatly boosted the overall 
success of the play. Other no- 
table performances were given 
by Wolf Muser and Cliff Cau- 

chance to keep the moods of 
the two 'plays* separate. Also, 
the whole production was just 
too long, and one came away 
with the conviction that either 
part of the drama could have 
stood alone and been suffi- 

Yet these factors did not 
detract from the sparkle of 
Muser's performance. It was 
a superb characterization of 

ference in interpretation, as 
Anderson seems to try to e- 
quate the two women. 

Cliff Cauble proved the 

most flexible in switching be- 
tween his dual roles. As Dun- 
ois (The Bastard) his voice 
and manner conveyed the re- 
quired logical mind, courage 
and wit of the French Army's 
Commander. And as a cast

To be or not to be. That 
was the question of Homer 
Teethy last week. Mr. Teethy, 
winner of the 1964 Southeran 
California Slinky Champion- 
ship, and a member of the 
Junior class of C*L.C.. has 
long been a member of good 
standing of our campus. 

The problem stemmed over 
whether or not Homer Teethy 
should be allowed to have his 
picture appear in the year- 
book. It seems there were 
several people who seriously 
doubted his very existence. 

On the behalf of their friend 
Homer, several indignant stu- 
dents, including John Abram- 
son, P.J. Olson, Pat Moore, 
and others circulated a peti- 
tion. The purpose of the peti- 
tion was to demonstrate the 
acceptance, existance, and 
prestige of Mr. Teethy. It also 
included the wish to have his 
picture appear in the year- 
book, as is the right of all 
members of the student body.

Nearly 400 students signed 
this petition; which is a mark 
of popularity that few per- 
sons, if any, on campus could

59:0: Face Cal Tech Tonight 

The CLC football team vir- 
tually made "oats" out of the 
Quakers as they drubbed 
Penn's adherents 59-0 last 
Saturday afternoon to even 
their season record at 3-3. 

The Kingsmen amassed 450 
total yards on their way to an 
all time touchdown record . 

CLC received the opening 
kickoff and moved the ball 
with relative ease as a Gaudio 
to Mooney pass from 11 yards 
out opened the scoring on- 
slaught. The first quarter ■."as 
an indication of what was in 
store for the hapless Quakers 
as they managed only four 
plays during the initial quar- 

The second quarter put the 
game on ice for the Kingsmen 
as they displayed the biggest 
fire works, since the initial 
drop of the atom bomb. Before 
the period ended five different 
Kingsmen had crossed the 
goal and CLC had an unbeat- 
ablp 39-0 halftime lead. 

Per most of the second half 
coach Shoup used the second 
and third string but the scoring 
continued while the defensive 
team thwarted the few scoring 
attempts the Quakers could 

Here is the scoring rundown: 

Skip Mooney - II yd. pass 

from Tim Gaudio 

John Luebtow - 16 yd. run 

Bob Trevathan - 33 yd. run 

Mike Cox - 8 yd. pa8B from 


John Hoefs - 15 yd. run 

Bob Milbum - 23 yd. intercep- 
ted pass 

Pete Olson - 39 yd. pass from 

Tim Roettger 

Milbum - 2 yd. plunge 

George Engdahl - 7 yd. run 

Engdahl made good 5 out of 

8 extra points. 

For the Quakers it was their 
worst drubbing of the season 
but for the Kingsmen the 
greatest (in volume) victory 
ever achieved at the school 
and its second straight win. 

Tonights game should be 
somewhat similar to the 
George Fox game. Cal Tech 
is relying mostly on inexper- 
ienced personnel and was 
dumped last week 36-12 by La 

The Kingsmen defeated Cal 
Tech last year 22-14 and hold 
a 2-0 lead in the series with 
SCIAC team. 

Santa Barbara Trounces 
J.V.'s In Home Contest 

The J.v. football team, 
playing inspired heads up ball 
for the first half, was drubbed 
last Friday U.C. Santa Bar- 
bara frosh 48-0 on a rain soak- 
ed field. 

Tonight the kingsmen take 
on a rough Antelope Valley 
Junior College team at Ante- 
lope Valley. 

Last weeks action saw the 
kingsmen, led by 280 pound 
newcomer Paul Christ play 
vigoursly for the first half vir- 
tually pushing the Gauchos 
around the field. The Kings- 
men came up with nine first 
downs to three for Santa Bar- 
bara with numerous scoring 
attempts being thwarted. The 
only scoring was a 60 yard 
pint return by the Gauchos in 
the closing minutes. 

The second half was a dif- 

ferent story however, as Santa 
Barbara exploded in the early 
minutes with a 60 yard touch- 
down pass and moments later 
came back with another touch- 
down pass to take a 20-0 lead 
into the final quarter. The 
only Kingsmen drive was stop- 
ped on the 13 yard line. 

In the fcurth quarter Santa 
Barbara put the game on ice 
with an intercepted pass 
touchdown. From this point on 
the Kingsmen seemed to run 
out of gas as the Gauchos 
came up with three more touch- 

A bright spot in the game 
was frosh back Dave Spurlock.

As football season nears a climax one gets the feeling 
that something has been lacking throughout the entire season. 

The pep club has done a great job. the enthusiasm been 
better than in previous years and the teams at C.L.C. are im- 
proving so much that people are no longer asking, "Cal Lu- 
theran. Where's that?" 

However the Kingsmen are still without a fight song to 
lift them to even greater heights. 

In past years there seemed to be a little interest in a fight 
song. Two students did make a half-hearted attempt to put 
together a song. The work was good but they failed to follow 
through. The music faculty wrote up a song but it went over 
like a lead balloon. Students just didn't respond to it and the 
athletes became less inspired the more it was played. 

Most major colleges and universities have a fight song 
they can respect and honor. Why should C.L.C. be any dif- 

Many people fail to realize how much a fight song means 
to the individual athlete. When a athlete hears his schools 
fight song he is reminded that his student body is behind him 
and the incentive to play harder is ever apparent. 

To further illustrate this point, fc^lroy Hirsh. former Wis- 
consin All-American and Ram All-Pro end. was asked when 
he retired from active play what his greatest thrill in football 
had been. He replied that one of his biggest occurred when 
introduced at the Chicago All-Star game and he ran onto Sol- 
diers Field to the strains of "On Wisconsin" 

Quite a tribute to a fight song from one who had caught 
several touchdown passes over fifty yards. 

Now don't get me wrong, a fight song will not help us 

make spectacular plays nor will it win our games for us. All 

it can do is give the student body a song of inspiration, a 

song which can be looked upon with respect and honor for the 


Had 1 the talent for song writing I would gladly practice 
what I preach. So, at best I will just crusade. 
C.L.C. is in dire need of a fight song and to put it off would 
be foolish. We have waited to long already. The time to act is 

A school of over 750 faculty and student body members 
should have enough talent in it to compile some lyrics to a 
catchy and not too mundane a melody. It's tragic to think that 
a school with such good athletic teams does net have a fight 


The SCIAC coaches voted us into the league.... it's now 
up to the Presidents of the colleges for the final vote.... they 
meet later this month.... enthusiasm seemed to lessen at the 
George Fox game after the game got out of control.... the Col- 
orado College game seemed to have put the Kingsmen on the 
winning path.... Cal Tech has only nine lettermen returning... 
The cross country team seems to be imgoving each year.... 
look for a better record from the basketball team even though 
the schedule has been steiped up.... do you think C.L.C. 
footballers will ever again get coach Shoups permission to try 
for a first down on 4th and 51?....

Jump on the bandwagon 
Everi-one is going to start 
rooting for the home team a- 
gain because they have won 
a couple of games, and there 
is great promise for winning 
the bigger percentage of the 
remaining games. 

You know, it ceases to a- 
maze me that our "winning" 
teams always have such a 
large and loyal following and 
if they lose or even if they 
are behind in a game, the fd- 
lowers don't seem quite so 
"true-blue" anymore. Another 
quite surprising thing is how 
a coach or a player can be so 
close to professional one 
game, and the next week "he 
doesn't know a thing about 
football or game strategy." 
Oh well, we should all be 
glad that we aren't as weird 
as the students from most 
cdleges. We should be happy 
that we don't stand-up and 
yell, and show "pep, etc." 
making fools of ourselves 
when we are behind. At least 
we can sit there and be de- 
pressed with no hope of com- 
ing from behind. 

I hate to be so sarcastic, 
but something must be done! 
Our problem seems to be 
threefold: (1) the students 
must come to realize they are 
away at college and that there 
are other things besides high 
school; (2) when they do stay 
on campus, they should take 
part in the activities offered 
to them, and, (3) the spirit 
must be generated in the in- 
dividual and made to work as 
a student body. Let's begin 
with the individuals and see 
what each one of you can do 
about these three areas. 

There are many oEportuni- 
ties open to all students every 
week. Tonight all the guys 
with cars that had nerve e- 
nough to have their gas paid 
to the game, are taking car- 
loads cf girls to our exciting 
victory over Cal Tech in the 
Rose Bowl. By the way, just, 
a little something for you guys 
who are taking only your girl- 
fripnds...Oops! sorry, I wasn't 

going to be sarcastic anymore. 
Next Friday night, forth-one 
of us are leaving for a great 
weekend trip in San Fran- 
cisco. We have rented an air- 
conditioned reclining-seat 
bus. plus a Travelodge AAA 
Motel to make everything com- 
fortable. The whole trip will 
cost a total of $18.25 which is 
very inexpensive for such a 
trip. Food will be purchased 
individually. We leave here 
Friday night and arrive at our 
motel early Saturday morning. 
We are, of course, going to 
root our team to victory at 
Hayward. then go out on the 
town Saturday night to cel- 
ebrate the win. We will go to 
church in the area on Sunday 
: morning and then head for 
home, reaching CLC about 
10:00 P.M. Here is a real 
chance for a weekend packed 
full of fun. Tickets may be 
purchased by calling me at 
Extension 302. Hurry!

\J\ I LI wlOI I I \J I ^Vy I \\J In regard to the story in the ?so many instances of inaccu- 1 than 

Staff Unjustifiable 

In a number of letters that have been submitted since pub- 
lication of the last issue of the ECHO. I have found a number 
of unwarranted attacks against the general staff of the ECHO. 
This reflects only immature and irrational thinking. The opin- 
ions expressed in the form of editorials on the Back Page are 
those of the writer and do not necessarily reflect the opinions 
of any member of the staff. To condemn, collectively, the 
newspaper staff for an editorial is analogous to condemning 
the entire student body for the opinions expressed in a single 
student's letter to the editor. 

It should also be noted that the Back" Page has tradition- 
ally, and is currently devoted to the expression of student 
opinion. It also has the responsibility of provoking these re- 
sponses, which, until recently, it has not adequately done. 
It is only from ignorance that one can treat an editorial as a 
news story" in his thinking or comment. Those who evaluate 
the content of the ECHO, or the opinions expressed therein, 
with a closed and critical mind benefit neither themselves, 
their fellow students, or the college community of which they 
are a part. 



Dark Side Of Life 

Notice the headline? There 
hasn't been much 'on the light 
side' around campus lately, so 
this week's epic is devoted to 
some of the little things that 
have contributed to the gen- 
eral depression on campus. 

For example: Seems that 
suddenly we are faced with a 
plethora of decisions to make. 
Do we agree with the opinions 
of our Poly Sci. teachers, or 
those of our predominantly 
conservative Repub.Ucan par- 
ents? Shall we look at the Bi- 
ble from Reverend Kallas' or 
Pastor Wagner's viewpoint? 
And most pressing, should we 
study for Chemistry. English. 
or watch television? 

Black day— when both your 
next-door neighbors run out of 
matches, too. 

Probably the hardest thing 
in the world to find is a dime 
or two nickels when the coke 
machine blinks on with that 
smug little sign: "Use correct

The Mountclef ECHO is published bi-monthly except during 
vocation, holidoy, and examinotion periods by the students of 
Colifornio Lutheran College at Thousand Ooks, Californio. 
Subscription rote is SI. 50 per school year. 

In regard to the story in the 
last issue of the paper titled 
' 'Campus Political Debate 
Reveals GOP Strength", I am 
not at all surprised to find 
that the author chose to keep 
his identity concealed. In the 
following paragraphs I intend 
to make a distinction between 
this report and the truth so 
clear that no honest person 
can misunderstand it and no 
dishonest person can distort 

First I feel that the article 
and author are in need of 
some serious criticism. For 
what proports to be a factual 
news story this article con- 
tains an awful lot of editorial 
comment. Either make a news 
story - or make it an editorial 
but don't trytgdisguise an ed- 
itorial by representing it as a 
news report. In addition to the 
numerous instances of edito- 
rializing, I have discovered 

I so many instances of inaccu- 
rate reporting and «o many 
misquotes and distortions that 
I can only conclude that the 
author is either incompetent 
or dishonest. 

In the second paragraph t 
am reported to have said that 
' 'The Federal Government 
must enter into states rights 
in some areas." but neglected 
to state what areas. What I ac- 
tually said was, "The Fed- 
eral Government has only en- , 
tered into areas which have 
been traditionally left to the 
states when these things be- 
come a national concern. One 
area that comes most readily 
to mind is the integration of 

In the third paragraph it 
says, "Mr. Salminen weakly 
defended the program (the 
President's War on Poverty) 
by stating that he would ra- 
ther be termed a socialist 

Education Is Student's 
Primary College Goal 

Your recent editorial con- 
cerning the lack of "letters 
to the editor" confronts many 
with illogical thinking on 
someone's part. 

First of all, students do 
come for educational pur- 
poses: Is it unreasonable to 
allow them to pursue that 
which they are paying a good 
$2,000 a year? Does educa- 
tion mean that they must par- 
ticipate in every opportunity 
and social activity? Must 
they, above all, have some 
"gripe", as you infer, about 
campus life to be educated 
and responsible? 

Hardly! The greatest facet 
of a liberal arts education is 
ocurring not in the classroom, 
the student union, the football 
field, nor on music tours. 
Rather it is in the intrigal 
personal relationships that 
develop between persons that 
the educational process takes 
its fullest meaning. It is in 
the laughs and cries, the 
greetings of one to another, 
the "cramming" for that next 

exam, the "bull sessions" in 
the dorm, that last minute talk 
with the instructor that adds 
meaning and perspective to 
our college career. 

Secondly, I do not think that 
letters to the editor need nec- 
essarily be critical evalua- 
tions of campus life nor an ex- 
pression of dissatisfication 
with something about college 
life. Many of us who trans- 
ferred to CLC did not do so 
because CLC is higher aca- 
demically, nor more famous, 
but on the contrary, here there 
is an opportunity to help build 
a college of promise. 

Perhaps those who really 
think there is an overwhelming 
attitude of student apathy 
ought to come out of their 
shells and recognize we are 
all groping in many ways to 
make best use of the time our 
Creator has entrusted to us. 

Look around at the little 
things, not some wishful 
thinking on Socrates' pillar.

than see his fellow man pla- 
gued by want and inferior 
conditions." This statement 
is immediately followed by 
the editorial comment, "Per- 
haps he has the right idea. 
Perhaps we should all sit 
around and let the government 
support us. (1) While the re- 
port of my statement is rea- 
sonably accurate, the editor- 
ial statement completely dis- 
torts the meaning in the con- 
text that it was made. (2) My 
statement was not made in de- 
fense of the "War On Pov- 
erty" but in defense of the 
Liberal policies of the John- 
son Administration. In sub- 
stance what I said was that— 
if to be a good American. I 
must be hard and callous tow- 
ard suffering, if I must let 
millions of Russians starve 
when I can aid them, if I must 
let people, who through no 
fault of their own, exist under 
substandard conditions con- 
tinue to so exist— then I would 
rather be called a socialist. 
This, as you can see. in no 
way suggests letting the gov- 
ernment support anyone. 

In paragraph four, Mr. Ches- 
ney is quoted as having said 
"that Senator Humphrey was 
described by the Democrats 
for American Action as a Fa- 
bian Socialist." What Mr. 
Chesney actually said was 
that Senator Humphrey was a 
prominent member of the Am- 
ericans for Democratic Action 
and that this was a Fabian 
Socialist organization and 
therefore Mr. Humphrey was a 
Fabian Socialist. 

I was then reported to have 
"retorted by charging Senator 
Goldwater with extremism and 
indecisivness. I did not make 
this statement in response to 
Mr. Chesney's remarks, but in 
fact, my remarks preceded 
those made by Mr. Chesney. 
My Statement in regard to 
Goldwater's stand on extrem- 
ism was made in answer to a 
direct question from the aud- 

If this article is an example 
of the "clear," "honest" 
reporting that we can expect 
from the ECHO-then I am 
greatly disappointed by the 
low standards of journalistic 
excellence and integrity that 
are expected of the reporters 
for our newspaper.

Science Club Hears Of 
Space Medicine Research 

The first meecing of the Cal-

Science Club was held Thurs- 
day evening, November 12. 
The guest speaker was Cap- 
tain Goren of Pt. Mugu Naval 
Station, who spoke of var- 
Station, who spoke on var- 
ious aspects of Space Med- 

In the course of the evening, 
the more than 100 students 
who attended the lecture 
heard Captain Goren, who 
holdd a Doctor of Science 
degree in public health from 
Johns Hopkins University, 
stress the close relationship 
between the physical and 
biological sciences in the 
space medical research pro- 
gram. He noted particularly 
that the biological scientists 
are instrumental in feeding 
information Iti human stress 
limits to physical scientists 

who in turn convert this in- 
formation into the construction 
of space vehicles. Captain 

Goren cited radiation, ores- 
sure, atmospheric content, 

and combinations of these 

and other factors as examples 

of human stresses. 

Dr. Goren explained that a 
major problem in space med- 
icine will be air polution, and 
its control. "Just as this fac- 
tor has been controlled in 
the confined quarters of a 
submarine, so can it be con- 
trolled in space, after a great 
amount of research," was 
his belief. 

He also cited problems that 
might arise from a continuous 
state of weightlessness and 
chronic acceleration, and 
mentioned that research in 
these areas in currently con- 
tinuing on University of Cal- 
ifornia campuses at Berkeley

Large Student Group Participates 
In Camarillo State Hotspital Visits 

Approximately 180 students 
are presently participating in 
the Camarillo Koinonia fro-

The Hospital is home to 
some 6.000 patients. One 

hundred wards spread over 
1,000 acres comprising a city 
within itself. About 80% of 
the patients are discharged 
within a year, according to 
Mr. Arnle Lockert. director of

Begun last October as an 
experimental project in de- 
termining ways in which stu- 
dents can serve man through 
their Christian faith, the pro- 
gram was initiated with ap- 
proximately 150 students in 
several small groups. Foun- 
dation work was completed 

in November of '63 by a com- 
mittee consisting of Carolyn 
Cottom and Lynda Benton. 
*64 graduates; Stan Kano and 
Curt Pedder. 

This year there are ten 
groups. Each group makes a 
monthly visit to an assigned 
ward presenting variou.s pro- 
grams of entertainment. An 
opportunity to establish mean- 
ingful and personal relation- 
ships by students secures 
patients with the warmth and 
security of friendship.

of hide and seek amongst the

Discussion .. 9.5 Theses 
Favored Campus Topic 

by Christina Iverson 

"Life is a rut, full of pains 
and hardships." 

"But. don't you think these 
hardships are used as a com- 
parison to joy?" 

"Goals are incomprehen- 
sible and we should leave 
them there. Ben Franklin stat- 
ed that we should enjoy the 
little things. In frustration for 
a goal, you can miss the little 
things in life. Live for today, 
not a goal." 

It soon became apparent 
that this discussion group 
was not the group discussing 
the 9.5 Theses. Looking a- 
round me. I saw a group of 
seven or eight students with 
Dean Gangesi at a table in 
the corner. This, I was to find 
out, was the group discussion 
on which I was to report. The 
first discussion was held by 
those interested in forming 
the Campus Y. 

9.5 Theses 

The 9.5 Theses were adapt- 
ed from those drawn up at the 
recent Lutheran Student Study 
Conference held at Valparaiso 
University in August and Sep- 
tember of this year. 

Numbers two and six pro- 
voked the most discussion. 
Number two reads: That the 

confessional description nf 
God, the church, and the 
world are inadequate for mod- 
ern man's understanding of 
his life and mission. Number 
six is: That traditional con- 
fessional terminciogy and im- 
agery (e.g. salvation, justifi- 
cation, redemption, atone- 
ment) fail to address modern 
man's real needs. 

The question arose— "How 
are the Apostles and Nicene 
Creeds inadequate? After all. 
they are the basis of our 
Christian life. Number two 
points to a watered down 

"Yes. but how can Chris- 
tianity be presented in to- 
day's scientific world? The 
vastness of the universe is 

Hummm, it seems to be 
10:35 and still no plane, no 
roomates. No big thing, you 
only have two midterms tomor- 
row. Everyone knows how 
easy Psych and Zoo midterms 

Suddenly, the plane is here, 
and you see your roomies, 
giggling excitingly like a 
bunch of bubblegumers, com- 
ing towards you. What have 
they got to giggle about on a 
rainy cold Sunday night? 

You answer the chorus of 
"Hi"*s with a grunt denoting 
displeasure at their tardiness. 
But they are oblivious to your 

You ask. "Did you guys 
have fun?" You know that is 
all that is required of you. 
Their happy answers will take 
care of the conversation the 
whole drive home. 

It's 12:45. raining and cold 
and you have to wake up Mrs. 
Marquardt to let you in, con- 
sequently endearing yourself 
to her for all eternity. Herding 
lyour sleeny roomates to the 
room, one of them comes alive 
long enough to ask you, "Hey. 
did you have a good time here 
on campus this weekend?"

"An adequate creed would

Another question that arose 
was. "What are 'modern man's

Christian make contact with 
the unbeliever or agnostic? 

"The approach used should 
not be the same in each

Aspects of Campus Life Examined 


Student Government 
For Who's Benefit ? 

NOTE: The following is a 
beginning of a series of ar- 
ticles on student government. 
The purpose will Ife to dis- 
cuss certain aspects of stu- 
dent government, the process 

and methods used to estab- 
lish programs, patterns of 
activities and a few basic 
problems and the solutions 
reached thus far. 

This issue's discussion 
touches on student acathy 
and one of the concepts 
brought forth to decrease stu- 

Audience Can Play 

Hey, Kingsmen, honored 
Alumni, and guests on cam- 
pus! Have a ball this first 
Homecoming weekend, and let 
yourselves go— and see the 
Melodrama. "Gold in the 
Hills, or The Dead Sister's 
Secret" is being presented 
under the directorial guidance 
of Mr. Robert O. Wehling, 
CLC's assistant professor in 
Speech and Drama. 

As the term 'melodrama' im- 
plies, the epic is being played 
for laughs . . .and hisses and 
boos and applause, or however 
else the audience wishes to 
express itself. For this will 
be for the viewers as well as 
the players a venture into the 
mood of the 19th century, 
when theatrical villains were 
roundly hissed by expressive 
audiences, while heros and 
'fair ladies* were loyally ap- 
plauded for their every high' 

flown phrase and action. 

There has been some rumor, 
on campus, of type-casting in 
the play, a rumor which crafty 
director Wehling will neither 
affirm or deny. "Mum's the 
word on that score," a reli- 
able source maintained, "the 
audience will just have to de- 
cide for itself." 

With this in mind, the same 
solid source suggests that the 
actors to watch are Erica 
White, as heroine Nell Stan- 
ley. Bill (Golden Voiced 
Ewing as the hero, Jack Dal- 
ton, and Robert Denman as 
that blackest of villains, 
Richard Murtagroyd. 

Special attention, too, 
should certainly be given to 
Norm Denison, displaying un- 
suspected vocal talent as 
Chuck Conners, a Bowery 
guide, and to Dave Regalado 
as a "dereUct." 

Chris Salminen. The hilarious masterpiece of theatrical art 
was perfonned before an enthusiastic audience last night in 
the college Little Theater.

dent disinterest in student 
body affairs. 


"...force the Law rather than 
the wishes of the student 
body..." was a statement 
made by student body presi- 
dent George Engdahl last 
Thursday in an abortive stu- 
dent body meeting with a sol- 
id 50 or so present. 

George pointed out that in 
past years the student lead- 
ers have not been able to 
achieve a close contact with 
the governing process with 
the student body. In times 
past many student leaders 
have represented only their 
own wishes and desires. 

Student government is not an 
easy task. The responsibil- 
ities are enormous, if taken 
seriously, and affect all who 
claim to be students. There 
are the trivial duties that go 
with every office, such as 
giving greetings and welcome 
speeches to guest groups, 
signing letters of correspond- 
ence and a multitude of oth- 
ers. But, there are also the 
subjective, the unseen, and 
the thankless duties. 

There is a challenge in that 
becomes opportunity for each 
student leader. That chal- 
lenge is not to be an egotistic 
manifestation of somebody 
really "important" in the 
eyes of his constituents, but 
rather it is a challenge that 
demands an active response— 
WHAT can we do to make our 
educational process more 
meaningful and useful. 

Through programs demanding 
student participation, we are 
afforded an opportunity to 
investigate how we react and 
function with others. We begin 
to see our place in life, our 
abilities, the directions we 
desire to take, and most im- 
portant, we learn to use the 
dormant intellect of the class- 
room textbook as we begin 
to reason intelligently. 

Student participation in ac- 
tivities, them, is not impor- 
tant merely for the sake of 
participation. Last Thursday's 
student body meeting was to 
have been just such an op- 
portunity, in which the stu- 
dent body would take author- 
ity into their hands and deter- 
mine which direction their 
representatives would turn. 
The Council is to be com- 
mended, but is is unfortunate 
that the same cannot be said 
of the student body. 

Are our leaders not doing 
what we want them to? Or 
are we as a student body, 
unawaie or incapable of re- 
ponding td opportunity?

The End Of Civilization 

By John Moreland 
Echo Literary Editor 

Chill of Dusk by Stephen 
Minot, Doubleday & Company, 
Inc., Garden City, New York. 
1964, 327 pp. 

The period following a fic- 
titious occurance of "World 
War III" has, in recent times, 
become a familiar setting for 
the novel. Chill of Dusk is 
another of these in the grow- 
ing tradition which includes 

On the Beach and Alas, Ba- 
bylon, to name but two. Ste- 
phen Minot approaches the 
problem from a different angle 
than most of the others, how- 
ever, an angle strangly re- 
miniscent of Golding's Lord 
of the Flies. The setting is 
one of the scattered outposts 
where civilization still exists 
after the major portion of it is 
destroyed in World War III. 
The colony is fortressed a- 
aginst the roaming bans of 
men turned savages which 
now inhabit the forests of 
Main where the cdony is lo- 

A man named Adams has 
taken over the leadership of 
the colony and has attempted 
to preserve as much of the old 

of the supporters, but less 
than 10% of the student body 
manage to tear themselves 
from other "pressing" matters 
to devote, a mere half-hour to 
their own governing body. 

civilization as possible, but 
the job is much more difficult 
than it would seem. At this 
time, some fifty years after 
the War, there are very few 

people who knew what life 
was before the War, and the 
things that Adams tries to 
teach in his program of com- 
pulsory education are there- 
fore lacking in historical sig- 
nificance to the children of 
the day. And amid a life that 
is primarily a struggle for 

survival, the people other 
than Adams are not sure that 
time spent in such unproduc- 
tive pastimes as studying are 
worth the trouble. Hand in 
hand with the growing lack of 
historical consciousness 

come the lack of ethical con- 
sciousness. Life begins to 
consist mainly of the satis- 
faction of the physical de- 
sires - even religious beliefs 
have become taboo except 
for a small band of Catholics 
who are not allowed to mix 
with the other citizens of the 

Chill of Dusk traces the 
decay of hunan values when 
they are removed from their 
past by telling of the lives 
of Adams, his children, and 
his grandchildren. The book 
is, indeed, a worth "document 
for peace."

Kingsmen Couped By Sagehens 
Meet U.C.R. This Afternoon 

The C.L.C. Kingsmen had 
their four game winning streak 
come to an abrupt halt as the 
Pomona Sagehens handed our 
footballers a 14-8 loss. 

The Kingsmen will close out 
the 1964 season today against 
the University of Riverside 
Highlanders at 1:30 on the 
Mount Clef field. This will 
be a revenge game for the 
Kingsmen as they suffered a 
heartbreaking 22-15 loss at 
the hands of the Highlanders 
last year. 

Todays game will go down 
in the pages of Kingsmen his- 
tory for it marks the first of- 
ficial homecoming game in 
the school's history. Nothing 
would be more fitting than to 
get the annual homecoming 
show off than a solid victory. 
The Highlanders are expected 
to be much improved and bol- 
stered by added maturity and 
experience with 24 returing 

If the Kingsmen are going to 
win this game they will have 
to contain the running of full- 
back John Elstead who clocks 
the 100 yd. dash at 9.9 and 
running back Stewert Fox who 
will work in the shifting "I" 

In last week's bitterly fought 
contest the Kingsmen were 
turned back continually in 
their attempt to score the go- 
ahead touchdown. 

In the first half the Kingsmen 
seemed to be flat and listless 
and before they realized what 
was happening the Hens had 
jumped to a 14-0 lead. It 
looked like a rout until the 
defense, which has stopped 
many a scoring threat through- 
out the entire season, dug in 
and stopped the Pomona of- 
fense for the final three quar- 

The Kingsmen had a great 
opportunity to score as the 
fourth quarter began. The ball 
rested on the six yard line of 

Grapplers Begin 
Season Dec. 4 

In the expanding athletic 
program at C.L.C. , amateur 
wrestling, one of the oldest 
and most honorable of all 
competitive sports will make 
its debut. 

Coach Don Garrison will 
handle the squad in its initial 
season. CoachGarrison comes 
from Oceanside where he had 
organized and directed a 
wrestling program at Ocean- 
side High School. 

Amateur or collegiate wres- 
tling is not to be confused 
with 50 called professional 
wrestling. Collegiate wres- 
tling rules are set by the 
N.A.I. A. rules committee and 
are strictly enforced by qual- 
ified referees. 

These ruled stress the pro- 
tection of the individaul par- 
ticipants and encourages the 
use of intelligence, skill, 
speed, strength and endurance

Pomona with fourth down and 
three yards to go. Tim Gaudio 
then passed to Skip Mooney. 
but he was trapped behind 
the line of scrimmage and 
Pomona took over. 

Two plays later, when all 
seemed lost, C.L.C. got its 
first real break of the game 
as Ray Watkins recovered a 
fumble on the Pomona thirteen 
yard line. A Gaudio to Mooney 
aerial made it 14-6. and Lynn 
Thompson ran for the two 
point conversion to put the 

Kingsmen within six. 

Thefired-up Kingsmen nearly 
pulled the game out of the 
bag with three minutes left 
in the game. Gaudio pitched 
out to Trevathan and the 
halfback lofted a forty yard 
pass which Mooney literally 
stole from the defenders to scoring position. 
But, once again the Kingsmen 
were unable to move the ball. 
Pomona then took over on 
downs and ran out the clock. 

Harriers Finish Season 
With Promising Record 

This fall the cross country 
circuit - in addition to the 
usual trees, boulders, hills, 
ravines, washes, gullies, 
barbed wire fences, and over- 
hanging bushes-was beset by 
more perilous hazards - in- 
eligibilities, scholastic dis- 
aEpointments, pulled ham- 
strings, strained ligaments 
and, the occupational hazard 
of all runners, shin sfiints. 
But despite these trials, the 
season just concluded has 
been memorable if not suc- 

It has been memorable for 
the men who have participated 
in this lonely sport. It has 
meant long hours of practice 
with more than a few moments 
of agony, especially the post- 
race period when the stomach 
seems to go in all directions, 
sometimes even up. But this 
year's team "an look back and 
say, "I gave it all I had, and 
it was worth it!" 

The season has also been 
successful, for coming off a 
slow start considerable im- 

provement was registered each 
week. Statistically one can 
point to dual meet victories 
over California Baptist Col- 
lege, Azusa College, a tie 
for first in the season's only 
home meet (triangular run with 
Pasadena College and LIFE 
College), and an excellent 
third place finish at the Chap- 
man Invitational. Individually 
Bob Russell closed the sea- 
son with a string of four first 
place victories. 

And perhaps even an in- 
terest in cross country not 
restricted to the runners has 
been generated, as evidenced 
by the support of the academic 
community at our only home 
meet. It is anticipated that 
this interest will continue in- 
to the track season and will 
increase come next fall. 

For the students who re- 
presented CLC - Bob Russell, 
Dennis Barr, Russel Flora, 
Gary Wiemer, Dennis Sumstad, 
Larry McLean, Larry Laine, 
Terry Moore, Bill Swiontkow- 
ski - recognition and appecia- 
tion are in order. 

Sports.. What Future ?? 

by Paul Kilbert 
Echo Sports Editor 

The athletic picture at C.L.C. has improved tremendous- 
ly during the past three years. As many of our Alum's will re- 
call the sports picture was not to bright when the school o- 
pened in 1961. 

Pour sports were on tap for the opening of the 1961-62 
year. These included: cross country, basketball, baseball, 
and track. Since then we have added football and wrestling to 
our varsity competition. 

This is an amazing feat for a school which didn't have 
an athletic department just three short years ago. Much credit 
must go to Dr. Luther Schwich the first athletic director for 
the fine job he did in organizing the athletic program and to 
Dr. Orville Dahl who, unbeknown to many, was very instru- 
mental in seeing that Dr. Schwich's proposals received 
prompt attention. 

By these statements one might conceive that the future 
has never looked better for C.L.C. in athletic fields. But 
does it? Does the future look better or does it contain a pseu- 
do covering? 

One might ask what could possibly be wrong? We have 
good teams. We have improved the quality of our competion 
tremendously and now are on the verge of being accepted into 
one of the toughest small college conferences on the west 
coast. What more could we want? 

Good competition hasn't hurt any team yet. and as many 
people realize we can greatly improve our weaknesses by 
associating with people of greater ability. But could it be 
that we are about two years ahead of ourselves in competi- 

Three tough football teams have asked us to play them in 
the near future. They are Cal Poly of San Luis Obispo, Cal 
Pdy of Pomona, and Chico State. It is doubtful that we will 
schedule any of them next year but it shows that C.L.C. has 
become known in the athletic world. Many older schools 
wouldn't even consider playing teams of this calibur. 

Can C.L.C. afford to compete with these teams on an 
equal basis, especially when finances play an ever so vital 
part? Money is needed for recruiting, schoiorships, travel ex- 
penses and other miscellaneous items. Every one of these 
areas would have to be stepped up in order for C.L.C. to par- 
ticipate on an equal basis. 

The way the financial status of the school has been mov- 
ing the athletic department cannot expect its budget to be 
increased much, if any. during the next few years, and can- 
not rely on much monetary suffort from the Alumni Associa- 
tion fa quite a while. 

The problem is this: should C.L.C. continue its head 
long drive to play the top teams on the coast or should we 
remain stationary for a couiie of years and let the budget 
catch up with the competition? 

The latter idea seems more feasible at the time although 
it might cause the majority of sports enthusiasts to throw 
tantrums. It would be better to hdd back now than to find out 
some day that we will have to drop our intercollegiate pro- 
gram to a mediocore level in order to preserve finances. 

One day C.L.C. 's athletic teams will develop into a 
small school powerhouse on the west coast but right now it 
could be disastrous not to stop and analize our position in 
athletic circles and to set a plan to gradually improve our 
intercollegiate program in relation to the financial position 
of the athletic department. 

A headlong drive to keep up with other teams in person- 
nel almost cost C.L.C. the chance to join the S.C.I.A.C. con- 
ference It would be a shame if in our haste to have top teams 
we did damage to future teams by not knowing what we are 
getting into.

Pep Improving Since S.F. 

Welcome home. Class of 
'64. Also a belated welcome 
back to all rooters who went 
on the escapade to San Fran- 
cisco Nov. 7th. The weekend 
exodus to San Francisco 
proved to be very successful 
as vie made Cal State-Hay- 
ward wish they had never 
heard of Martin Luther. A 
large part of the excitement 
was the fact that we had more 
people in our stands than Cal 
State had in theirs. In fact, 
we had many of the good Lu- 
therans from Cal State on our 
side injhe 2nd half. 

The whole weekend was 
filled with excitement and fun 
as we had a sleepless, but 
wild time on the rooters bus 
going up on Friday night. We 
arrived at our TraveLodge 
motel on Saturday morning at 
7:00 AM and went to sleep 

until game time. After the 
game, we had a victory cel- 
ebration on the town in the 
Bay City, and there is no 
question as to whether every- 
one had a good time that 
night. It began raining about 
11:00 Sat night, so some of us 
had to "Swim" back to the 
bus, but it added to the fun of 
the night. Broadway didn't 
quite live up to my expecta- 
tions! I was told thac it was a 
row of nightclubs, but it seems 
that it is instead, a row of 
indoor plunges. Every building 
had a sign out front saying, 
"Come in and Swim." Sunday 
morning, we were all awakened 
by the seeet voice of the mo- 
tel manager telling us it was 
time to get up. We then went 
to church, and headed for home. 
I hsve nothing sarcastic to 
say about the spirit of the

Kingsmen Invade S.F. 

Deciding to test the adage 
that "Variety is the spice of 
life," Schmolle World left the 
fair CLC campus for a look at 
'the light side* in northern 
California. The Hayward game 
provided the reason for the 
shift in scene and a delight- 
ful weekend. The excitement 
of winning our game, and Sat-

even made up for the discom- 
forts of my travel arrange-

Kingsmen rooters rode in air-

by CLC's bearded den-mother

other unfortunates. 

But, can't complain too 
much. I suppose it was bet-

Understand that the Cal 
State people were most hospi-

Kingsmen, like typical tour- 
istas, didn't want to miss a 
thing, which feeling resulted 
in the expending of a great 
deal of shoe leather and ca- 
ble-car fares. 

Yes, of course we rode the 
cable cars; the more adven- 
turous Kingsmen rode or hung 
on the open end. Others of us 
discovered that riding in the 
enclosed part isn't too much 
worse than a streetcar ride, 
except on the way up to the 
Fairmont Hotel. If ever a hill 
was perpendicular, I swear... 
A tour of the Fairmont was 
derigueur, unless you were 
chicken to get off of the cable 
car. (After all, I'd been to the 
Fairmont before, anyway). 
Then, all the way down to

Mid-terms came. Books were

Bof/i Views 
Ho\ Heard 


Early last week a self pro- 
fessed "liberal" received 
his chance to air his views 
on the "cold war" as he calls 
it, on this campus. 
Being somewhat of a liberal 
myself, I found that I agreed 
jwith several points of his 
talk in chapel. 
However. I missed hearing 
any rebuttal from the con- 
servative section. I certainly 
agree that there is a problem, 
but communication must be 
equal between parties. 
I feel it is important to have 
both sides of these arguments 
equally aired. Then, perhaps, 
we can reach a satisfactory

Mid-terms left; the pressure 
was gone. And back came the 
noise. The student situation 
was forgotten. Once again 
Mt. Clef Inn was the site of 
happiness, cheer, and merry- 
making. And this was good... 

A few think that the student 
situation is a day-to-day 
affair. They want to study 
every night, rather than be 
forced to cram at semester's 
end. They take seriously the 
fact that they have come to 

Somewhere in the distant 
past, it was decided that 7 pm 
to 7 am would be designated 
as "study hours." At the 
core of this designation was 
the fact that students, as 
maturing young adults, could 
live with mutual consideration 
for each other; that students 
could respect one another and 

co-operate to see that each 
person is given his rights. 

Somehow something has bro- 
ken down. Not that absolute 
silence was ever the goal, but 
the present dull roar, punc- 
tuated with continuous sporad-

pointing. More important than 
this is the fact that the pres-

Homecoming Means More.., 

The first Homecoming of California Lutheran College 
marks a highly significant point in the realization of a new 
center of Christian Higher Education. But do we realize the 
true meaning and significance of this historic milestone? Are 
the festivities and ceremonies of Homecoming weekend mere- 
ly another social event in an already full social calendar, or 
do they hold a deeper meaning. The true purpose is to wel- 
come and honor those men and women who have gone forth 
from CLC, and are currently representing this institution in 

The graduates who formed the first graduating class have 
been entrusted with a greater responsibility than most of us 
realize, in maintaining the image of a college who's motto is 
'Love of Christ, Truth, and Freedom". Future graduates, in 
becoming alumni, will share this responsibility. What we are 
in the eyes of the public, both those who support us and 
those who are skeptical of our purpose, is largely determined 
by the efforts of our alumni. 

Welcome home to those who have represented us, ...those 
who have carried forth the Christian ideals which form the 
academic and spiritual foundation of California Lutheran 


in the life of students. We 
feel that our mail service is 
inadequate and -inefficient. 
Many students have mailed 
letters which were not sent 
out on time. And many stu- 
dents have received letters 
an unusually long time after 
the postmark date. One girl 
received her bill dated Sep- 
tember 22 last Friday, Octo- 
ber 23. They have repeatedly 
been out of stamps. We also 
feel that the locking of the 
doors to the mail boxes is 
not necessary. It defeats its 
purpose when the students 
cannot pick up their mail on 
their way to chapel. 

Another source of irritation 
is the phone service. We feel 
we should be allowed to make 
collect calls from the room. 
The pay phones are usually 
out of order, inconvenient, 
and not private. 

We realise the Student Coun- 
cil is trying to correct some 
of these, but we want AC-

phus College from which he 
received his B.A. degree and

Convocation Begins Week 

Spiritual Re-emphasis Week 
will begin officially with an 
opening Convocation Sunday 
Morning at ii:X a.m. in the 
college gym-auditorium. This, 
and the six following addres- 
ses of Reverend Arthur will

Lowell Thomas Jr. To 
Narrate Arctic Film Here 

California Lutheran Stu- 
* dents and area residents are 
asked to mark their calendars 
for the appearance of the fa- 
mous Lowell Thomas, Jr. at 
California Lutheran College 
on Thursday, February 18, 
at 8:00 p.m. Mr. Thomas will 
narrate his new color film 
"Follow the North Star." The 
event, sponsored by the col- 
lege ' Artist and Lecture Se- 
ries, will be held in the Mount- 
clef gym-auditorium. 

The exciting film . which 
promises to be both educa- 
tional and entertaining, shows 
the scenic grandeurof Alaska, 
the Arctic Basin and the North 
Pole. Parts of the film were 
shown on TV "one time only" 
and received the coveted 
Christopher award. Now, for 
the first time, the public can 
see it in dramatic full color. 

Some of the highlights of 

the rich color panorama of 
northern adventure include 
the birth of an iceberg, a 
forced landing and survival 
in the shadow cf 20.000 foot 
Mt. McKinley, a flight over 
the North Pde, tribal dances 
and a primitive Eskimo wal- 
rus. Humor and pathos com- 
bine as the movie shows the 
daughter of Lowell Thomas 
befriending a baby moose and 
Navy frogmen swimming under 
ice floes to blast a way for 
a convoy. Artie experts and 
film technicians who have 
seen these pictures say they 
are undoubtedly the best ever 
taken in this area. 

Door admission will be 
$4.00 for an entire family, 
$1.00 and $.50 for adults and 
children in groups of ten or 
more, $1.00 for students (other 
than CLC), $1.50 fcr adults

One of the charter members 
of the local "Choraliers" 
singing group, she has shown 
continuing interest in CLC, 
donating her time to costume 
such past plays a? "Elijah," 
Gilbert and Sullivan's "H.M.S. 
Pinafore." "Dido and Aeneas 
and The Unicorn, Gorgon and 
The Manticore." 

Mrs. Funkhauser is presently 
very excited about her cos- 
tuming class. She believes 
that particularly those stu- 
dents who plan to become 
teachers will benefit from ta- 
king it: "They will have a 
ready store of knowledge 
when pageants roll around." 

They will also have the op- 
portunity of working and stu- 
dying under someone who is 
a bright example of that rare 
blend— talent. enthusiasm . and 
teaching ability, for Mrs. 
Funkhauser is a star, back-

Geneva, N.Y.-(I.P.)-Calling 
the decision to drop the reli- 
gious requirement for men 
students a step forward, the 
Rev. R. Channing Johnson, 
chaplain of Hobart College, 
said "I think it will help us 
work positively toward being 
a church related college in 
the best sense of the word." 

The resolution adopted by 
the faculty last year and ap- 
proved by the Board of Trus- 
tees, called for dropping the 
compulsory worship in chapel 
or in local churches "on the 
grounds that it does not 
achieve its purpose; tends to 
create attitudes that block 
real religious work, and is 
not essential to the nature of 
a church related college." 
Chaplain Johnson, in a 
lengthy report to the Chap- 
lain's Advisory Committee, 
pointed out: "Dropping a re- 
ligious requirement does not 
mean that we are dropping 
from concern those students 
who are confused, uninteres- 
ted or hostile. It means that 
we are seeking more effective 
means of reaching them. 

"In the past two years we 
have spent a great deal of 
time gathering and analyzing 
data on the functioning and 
results of the requirement of 
religion. This data has driven 

us to the conclusion that the 
requirement has been, if any- 
thing, a negative influence. 
It is interesting to note that 
those faculty and administra- 
tors most directly involved in 
the religious life on campus 
were unanimous in asking that 
the requirement be dropped. 

Questioned as to whether 
this change was not really a 
retreat from religion here, the 
chaplain said: "No require- 
ment is ever totally good or 
totally bad. Undoubtedly, 
some peonle have brought to a 
real faith through the reli- 
gious requirement. But our 
study has convinved us that 
far more have been lost than 
have been gained. We feel 
thaf: dropping the religious 
requirement frees us to move 
ahead with an exciting and 
hard hitting religious pro- 

"When we had the require- 
ment, religion on campus 
was the chaplain's problem. 
Without a religious require- 
ment, we have a chance to 
develop more personal re- 
sponsibilities" on the part 
of some of the faculty and 
administration. We carried out 
some pilot seminars this past 
year and think we have some 
ideas that the students will 
respond to well." 

Heigh Ho For Poetry! 

The bookstore rang with 
groans last week, as CLC stu- 
dents bemoaned the price of 
the Botany-and the weight of 
the Poly Sci books, and the 
unbelievable number of texts 
listed for one particular class. 
But the most recurrent com- 
plaint centered around one lit- 
tle paperback required for the 
majority of English classes. 
The book is titled Six Cent- 
uries of Great Poetry and ed- 
ited by Robert Penn Warren 
nad Albert Erskine. It is pre- 
sented as " extensive 
collection of the greatest Eng- 
lish lyric poetry from Chauser 
to Yeats. ..the finest anthology 
...available anywhere in a low 
priced edition." Yet the mere 
mention of the book brought 
pained expressions to a line 
full of students waiting re- 
signedly to shoot their semes- 
ter allowances on texts. 

However the book itself 
Ir. only a symbol upon which 
students can focus their dis- 
like. The noblem is, most 
ppople just don't like to study 

poetry, which is understand- 

avie to anyone who's had to 
e:.plicate a few poems prac- 
f'^ally letter by letter. It's 
often a boreing. annoying pro- 
cess which can easily kill 
pny faint tolerance one may 
previously have had for poetry. 

Therefore as a public ser- 
''ice the following list of sug- 
gested readings from the poe- 
try text is published. We hope 
^hat from this list suffering 
students will be able to gain 
some moral support, or at least

CLC Chapel Attendance 
Is It Not Compulsory ? 

by John Moreland 

Let us consider for a mo- 
ment one of the fine traditions 
of California Lutheran Col- 
lege. The tradition of which 
I am thinking is non-comnul- 
sory chapel. It is a fine thing' 
for a church supported school 
to be able to say that chapel 
is not compulsory and that, 
nevertheless, there is a large 
percentage of students in re- 
gular attendance. 

But, has anyone ever con- 
sidered what one of the pos- 
sible reasons for this attend- 
ance might be? During that 
half-hour of the day, there is 

no other public place that the 
student is allowed to be. Not 
only does the coffee shop 
close during the chapel peri- 
od, thus eliminating socializ- 
ing, but the library also 
closes, eliminating stydying. 
The prc^riety of such prac- 
tices might be questioned on 
the campus of an institute of 
higher learning. The reason 
fa having the coffee shop 
closed on Thursdays in any 
case, might also be ques- 
tioned. I think that it won't be 
long before an announcement 
is made that it will be illegal 
to be in the dorm rooms dur- 
ing "non-compulsory*' chapel. 

It would perhaps be more 
admirable if the students 
could be lured to chapel by 
what was offered there, rather 
than by a lack cf anything 
else on campus being accessi-

Lewis' "The Great Divorce" 
as presented by The's 
Company of Burbank, can be 
seen February 10 at 7:00 p.m. 
in the ftjountclef gym auditori-

tory company which tours 52 
weeks of the year from coast 
to coast and in Canada. 

This unusual production 
takes "man", as an observer, 
on an excursion by omnibus to 
the borders of Heaven. His 
fellow passengers, residents 
from Hell, have decided to 

take this once-a-year trip to 
look over Heaven and rush to 
get off the bus on arrival. 
They are met by their counter- 
parts who are willing to help 
them earn their way across 
the great mountain to eternal 
happiness. Eventually each 
passenger goes back to the 
bus for the return trip unwill-

The English theatre, as 
most people know, was born 
befwe the altar of the church. 
The long separation between 
church and stage is being 
brought to an end by The 
Bishop's Company. Its out- 
standing record includes over 
a million miles of travel in 
all 50 states and Canada. 

Asking the congregation to 
share in the creation of the 
play is part of the technique 
of The Company. No sets and 
few props are used. 

The casts of The Company 
are inter-racial and inter- 
faith. The Company has a full 
schedule being highlighted 
on church calendars in all 
parts of the country. The Com- 
pany is an independent or- 
ganization named in honor of 
Bishop Gerald Kennedy of 
The Methodist Church.

Blessed Are The Poor In Spirit 


Light Side Of Life 

While some of the dreamers 
on campus are viewing the 
school's take-over of the 
cafeteria facility with hope, 
cynics comment that we may 
soon refer to the Prophet Com- 
pany era as "the good old 
days." This disenchanted 
group cites the story of the 
down - and - out individual 
who heajd a little voice say- 
ing "Cheer up. things could 
get worse." So. he cheered 
up, and sure enough, things 
got worse! Life's like that, 
they say: Win a few, lose a 
few, but mostly you lose. 

Can't lose 'em all though. 
For example. 1 requested that 
the basketball team make an 
extra effort to win the Oxy 
game , since my mother would 
be in attendance. We were 
victorious, as you know, and 
Mother was delighted. A lot of 
fans aie annoyed, though, be- 
cause they haven't been able 
to see all three senior team 
members play too often. Seems 
you have to sneek into prac- 
tice lately to see Norm Deni- 
son and Jim Huchthausen in 
action. We suggest that com- 
plainers stop writing letters 
to FCHO editors and start 
writing poison pen notes to 
the coach. 

Robert's Rules of Order 
Take A Back Seat: (Some- 
body overheard this dialog at 
at a recent Student Council 
meeting) Council member: 
"Point of Order! Pres. -Just 
wait a minute. Council mem- 
ber—I moved for a point of 
order. Mr. Chairman. Pres. — 
Just hang it a minute, will 

Seems that some structural 
problems have been encount- 
ered by the students who mov- 
ed to Mountclet Apartments. 
Stu Major insists that he and 
his friend (the first beard) 
had to saw a bunk bed in half 
to fit it into their new apart- 
ment. He wouldn't say where 
they split it. 
Had a few adverse reactions 

to an implica'^ion in last is- 
sue's column that ALL the 
girls on campus go for red 
tennies. Sorry if I offended 
anyone, but you who don't 
like them must realize that 
you belong to a small, if vo- 
ciferous element. 

Good tip-don't miss Chapel 
on Friday of Spiritual Re- 
Fmphasis Week. We hear the 
speaker will be great! 

I suppose, since the new 
semester has begun, some- 
thing should be said at this 
point concerning new classes. 
Haven't had much opportunity 

to talk to fellow students 
about their new schedules, so 
must approach the situation 
from a purely personal point of 
view. In general, I'm pleased 
with my classes . . . although 
Mr. Relk did tell the same com- 
munications joke in History 52 
that I heard from him last se- 
mester in Poll Sci. Then, too.' 
I have Philosophy at 8:00 a.m. 
and who can be philosophical 
at that hour? Tiut, no real com- 
plaints: that is, I don't plan to 
drop anything . . . except, per- 
haps riding. Not that I'm cow- 
ardly (not much!), but I did ex- 
perience a certain drop in enth- 
slasm when the instructor 
n^ntioned saddle sores, losing 
one's balance, and what to do 
when the horse gets frightened 

I took Riding because I 
thought it would help me re- 
lease some of those tensions 
to which college students are 
subject. My next-door dorm 
neighbor. Lois Hendricks, 
started knitting for the same 
reason. Seems she found, after 
working on a ski sweater for 
months, that her instructions 
were incorrect, and she's be- 
come a nervous wreck trying to 
unscramble her pattern. We feel 
some kind of reverse poetic 
justice is at work in the world. 
One last (esoteric) comment: 
Until a few T-shirts ago. I 
thought that Wheaties was "the 
breakfast of Champions."???? 


In the past years, the stu- 
dent council has made many 
decisions— some good, some 
not so good. In our system of 
government, however, it is 
more than simple for a coun- 
cilman to act in accordance 
with his own dictates in his 
renesentative role. I've heard 
it mentioned recently that the 
council Is not a true cross- 
section of the student body 
at large. Perhaps this is true.

alsely Centered 
Kingsmen Spirit 


The 90-82 CLC victory over 
La Verne College January 23 
was a well-deserved victory; 
the Kingsmen played tough 
and should be praised. How- 
ever, there was one thing that 
disturbed me at that event: 
Our cheerleaders made fun of 
a tall, awkward La Verne 
player by calling him a "JolLy 
Green Giant" not once, but 
at least twice. We who were in 
the crowd not only approved, 
but needled this player further 
as we ridiculed his move- 

But let me ask this ques- 
tion. How many other schools 
have laughed at him? How do 
you think he felt inside when 
he knew he was being jeered 
by the opponent's cheering 
section? Would you like to be 
him at that moment? Can he 
help it if he is awkward? 

If each one of us will take 
a look not outside, but inside 
to ourselves, we will discover 
that the reason we do make 
fun of him is because we our- 
selves are insecure and must 
ridicule him tor our own 
sakes. Is each of us insecure? 
Was the attitude we displayed 
Christ-centered? Do the stu- 
dents at CLC want to be re- 
presented by this kind of 

If the answer is yes, then 
CLC may have its spirit; if 
it is no. then I urge each of us 

to act Christ-centered instead 
of self-centered. This way we 
can not only proclaim Christ 
Lord of sports, but also Lord 
of our lives. 


If it is, why not express your 
views. Perhaps there is gen- 
eral unrest with a decision 
made by your representativss. 
If there is, say so. 

The discussions which en- 
sued concerning the famous, 
(or should I say infamous) 
Berkeley resolution were the 
first real interests shown in 
a student council decision 
sincM I can remember. Al- 
though the manner of presen- 
tation of so-called studeni 
views by two excited students 
was vague, unduly threaten- 
ing, and thus ineffective, an 
interest was shown, and for 
this we were all grateful: for 
this was the first step toward 
student realization of the man- 
ner in which the student coun- 
cil operates. 

However. I think the stu- 
dents on a whole fail to re- 
alize the real power and tool 
they have in their council. 
There have been vital dis- 

cussions of unrest within the 
student body concerning sev- 
eral aspects of student life: 
finals schedule, bookstore, 
food service, tuition, dorm 
standards, etc. It's easy to 
gripe— too easy; but unless 
there is a willingness to do 
something about the problem, 
the unrest takes the form of 
mere gripes, and not honest 

My concern is that students 
come to a realization that the 
line of communication to the 
administration is through their 
own council of elected lead- 
ers. The manner of approach 
should not be a presentation 
of alternatives, nor vague 
threats to council members, 
but an honest and an orderly 
statement of concern. Use 
your council! Believe it or 
not. it's there to represent 
your views! Give us a chance 

to do it! „.„ ^ ^ .

ASB President Speaks 

Student Body President 
Explains Council Action 

During the recent student 
FSM movement on the campus 
of the University of Califor- 
nia at Berkely, the Student 
Council of California Luther- 
an College sent a letter de- 
nouncing the action of the 
students. Immediately the 
Council was attacked for tak- 
ing this action upon them- 
selves. The ensueing contro- 
versy led to the formulation of 
a policy concerning the Coun- 
cil's right to express their 
opinion in off campus politi- 
cal issues. The policy was 
submitted at a regular Coun- 
cil meeting, and discussion 
was tabled until the Council 

At the Retreat the recom- 
mendation of the students 

outside Council was taken 
from the table. It was again 
tabled on the grounds that 
the Council cbuld not abide 
by the recommended policy as 
such, without handicapping 
the Council from saying any- 
thing. We recognize the need 
for a policy on this subject, 
and are now formulating such 
a policy. Upon completion it 
will be submitted to the stu- 
dent body. 

We would like all interested 
parties to know that we are 
gravely concerned as to our 
position as a Council and 
wish to establish policy that 
will not hinder future Coun-

George Engdahl

Traveler, Instructor, Von Breyman 
Adds Atmosphere To Class Life 

A college professor, wife, 
an'd mother is Mrs. Gaby von 
Breyman, assistant professor 
in French at California Lu- 
theran College. Thousand 
Oaks. Petite and vivacious, 
she maintains a pleasant at- 
titude regardless of her busy 
and demanding schedule. A 
resident of Ventura, she com- 
mutes daily to meet het clas- 

She recently accepted an 
invitation to participate in a 
country-wide foreign Lan- 
guage Evaluation Committee 
to research existing level I 
and II language programs to 
make recommendations for 
their improvement. 

Mrs. von Brey man's inter- 
esting and varied background 
includes attendance in elem- 
entery and secondary schools 
in Canada. Belgium, France p4 | 
and California. A Phi Beta ' 
Kappa, she received her B.A. 
and M.A. degrees from the 
University of Southern Calif- 
ornia and a French Certificate 
from La Sorbonne in Paris, 
France, in 1938. 

Holding membership and 
offices in a number of learned 
societies, she was awarded 
departmental honors in French 
at U.S.C. for attaining a 
straight "A" in all graduate 
and undergraduate work under- 
taken in the French Depart- 

the newest pedogogical meth- 
ods in language teaching as 
well as linguistics and mod- 
ern literature. Weekends were 
spent touring famous cathe- 
drals, museums and art gal- 
leries. Sidetrips to Germany, 
Switzerland and Holland com- 
pleted the summer. 

Her husband, an honor 
graduate of the University of 
California. Santa Barbara, 
received his M.A. degree from 
the University of Southern 
California. He enjoys spend- 
ing his summers studying, 
traveling, or working at Point 
Mugu where he served as staff 

scientific assistant in the 
summer of 1962.

eration, vice-president of the 
American Field Service Club, 
member of the Assembly Com- 
mittee. Cosmopolitan Club, 
and year book staff, manages 
to keep a busy schedule, in 
tune with his parents? 

Next summer's plans might 
well find the von Breymans 
studying at an eastern uni- 
versity. Whatever they do. 
they will undoubtedly have 
both an enjoyable and edu- 
cational summer.

CLC Spectator Conduct: 

|What Is Deemed Proper? 

Season Finale 

Cagers Trounce BIOLA 122-77 
In Final Game Of '65 Season 

Three inspired seniors 
ended their basketball careers 
at CLC last Tuesday night, 
but before they bowed out they 
put on an exhibition that will 
be hard to match in future 
years, as the Kingsmen sound- 
ly bombed a weak Biola Col- 
lege team 122-77 thus ending 
the season with a 13-17 rec- 

Seniors Steve Gross (33). 
Jim Huchthausen (13) and 
Norm Denison (I2) tanked 
58 points to lead the CLC 
team to victory. 

The Kingsmen had rough 
going during the first part 
of the game and after eight 
minutes Biola trailed by only 
one point 20-19- 

This, however, was as 
close as Biola was going to 
get as our Kingsmen poured 
on the pressure, scoring e- 
leven straight points, and 
turned the game into a rout 
by stretching the lead to 63- 
34 at the half. 

The second half was just 
as devastating for the Biola 
quintet as the Kingsmen con- 
tinued the scoring onslaught, 
finally setting a new school 
record (total points) when 
Steve Zimmerman sank a free 
throw with 2:04 remaining. 

Gross led all scorers with 
his 33 points followed by 
Marv Branch with 20 points. 

In action last week, our 
Kingsmen lost all hopes of a 
.500 season by dropping two 
heartbreaking games to Nevada 
Southern 79-69, and Southern 
Utah 74-71. 

Our Kingsmen quintet al- 
most won the jackpot in the 
city of glitter and gold as 
they narrowly missed pulling 
an upset over the highly 
touted Rebels of Southern 
Nevada in one of the best 
efforts of the season. 

Nevada Southern led from 
the opening minutes of play, 
expandi ng its lead to 16 
points and threatening to make 
the game a runaway. 

The Kingsmen, however, 
were not about to disappoint 
a group of 40 loyal students 
who had followed them on the 
trip, as they came charging 
back to pull within three 
points of the Rebels. 34-31. 

This was as close as CLC 
was to come to them for quite 
a while as Southern Nevada 
reeled off eleven straight 
points to take a 45-31 half- 
time lead. 

Second half of play found 

the Kingsmen whittling at the 
Bebel lead and finally with 
6:10 left it looked as if CLC 
had hit a payoff when Wally 
Garman made a layup to move 
the Kingsmen once again to 
within two points of Southern 
Nevada 65-63. 

CLC however hit another 
dry spell; this time it was 
detrimental to the outcome, 
as the Rebels reeled off eight 
straight points in the final 
three minutes to ice the game. 

Wally Garman led the Kings- 
men in the scoring department 
with 17 points, of which four- 
teen came in the second half. 

The Southern Utah game 
was different, however, as 
the Kingsmen played "give 
away", a game which they 
have played throughout most 
of the season. 

The Kingsmen had many 
opportunities to break the 
game wide open but couldn't 
seem to gell for more than 
two or three minutes at any 
one time. 

Southern Utah trailing by 
nine points, 30-21. with eight 
minutes left in the first half, 
poured in 14 straight points, 
mostly layups, to outscore 
our Kingsmen 20-6 in the last 
eight minutes to take a 41-36 
halftime lead. 

The thunderblrds held a ten 

point advantage throughout 
most of the second half but 
pressure by CLC whittled the 
lead to four points with three 
minutes left to play. 

Weakening under the press, 
the T-Birds went into a stall 
with two minutes remaining 
in the game. 

Strategy called for CLC to 
foul the T-Birds and take the 
chance that the foul shot would 
be missed. 

The shot was missed, Bob 
Scrivano grabbed the rebound 
and the Kingsmen were in the 

With the clock reading one 
minute to play, Steve Gross, 
who had dealt a hot hand in 
pulling CLC within two points 
calmly stepped into the free 
throw line and sank two free 
throws to knot the game at 
69 all. 

The Thunderblrds took the 
ball down court and scored a 
basket to put them ahead for 
good with 34 seconds remain- 
ing, as CLC lost the ball and 
ensuing fouls enabled So. Utah 
to expand its lead.

PHONE 495 - 2129 

by Paul Kilbert ECHO Sports Editor 

Conduct of the students at basketball games seems to be 
a subject of great controversy on this campus. 

On the one hand we have the pious group telling us to be 
Christ-centered instead of self-centered, and on the other we 
have an extremist group favoring an "anything goes policy." 

Both groups are wrong in their ideologies of how students 
should act at basketball games, or for that matter, any athletic 

In the past three years our school has been slowly moving 
toward the reputation of being rowdy at athletic events. A rep- 
utation which CLC can definitely do without. And for those who 
scoff at this statement I suggest a talk with players from visit- 
ing teams. 

I don't think we can be expected to sit at all home games 
and just clap and cheer. This is not the true American spirit. 
Yelling at officials and visiting players is part of the game, a 
part which if taken away would in essence destroy the game. 

However, unruliness and actual rowdiness, both verbal and 
physical, that is completely contrary to the concepts of fair 
play, and even common decency is not condonable. 

A few people at this ^hool fail to recognize what true 
sportsmanship really is. Their conduct at games is not very 
becoming of mature adults and does nothing to create friend- 
ship between rival institutions. 

Calling individuals names when they are on the floor hurt 
or using vulgar language directed towards the officials or even 
yelling during free throws cannot be scoffed off by any true 

Sending a "mailbox warning" will not solve anything. The 

only way the situation can be curtailed with any success is by 
having the people responsible do their jobs completely. 

Our college policy manual states that all yell and song 
leaders should "display conduct which will bring credit to 
California Lutheran College." Have they? Have they really 
done a complete job, or have they just done the obvious? 

If a yell leader wants to use vulgar expressions directed 
towards officials or opposing players then he had better sit 
in the stands, for when he is wearing his uniform he is repre- 
senting California Lutheran College, and that's you and me. 

Personally I think we have a great bunch of song and yell 
leaders, and they should be commended for the fine job they 
have done all season long, but they also must realiz e what 
their job entails and who they are representing. ^tSm 

The idea that CLC is the only school which doesn't show 
good sportsmanship is ridiculous. This is a natural problem 
which has finally been brought to the fore by the United States 
Basketball Writer's Association in an appeal to the N.A.LA.. 

The NAIA, of which CLC is a member, has assured the 
Basketball Writer's Association support of a resolution which 
in essence would reward any institution whose crowd meets 
the American standard of decency and fair play, a citation for 
for their effort. 

There is still time for CLC to wake up to the fact that 
this cancerous seed has been planted. If we allow this disease 
to spread it will have devastating effects on the fine reputat- 
tion CLC has already established. 

We cannot scoff this unsportsman-like conduct by calling 
as some individuals have done; Problems are never 
solved by covering them with a pseudo-label. 

Which direction CLC will take is up to the student body 
as a whole. Let's quit shoving the responsibility on to the 
next person. The seed has been planted; now what are we 
going to do?

Highlights for the season 
have been the fine wins over

Steve Gross changed from a

College Replaces Christ With Seal 


It was visually brought to 
our attention in Chapel on 
Monday, February 15, 1965, 
that CLC is now more impor- 
tant than Christ. Apparently 
it was not considered wrong 
to replace the Cross of Christ 
with the "Official Seal of 
California Lutheran College.'* 
If one looks at the College 
Bulletin he will find the ex- 
planation of the seal on the 
inside cover. The thought and 
planning incorporated in the 
college seal are excellent 

and one may be certain that 
the entire college family is 
proud of it. The college seal 
may be important, however it 
does not contain the same 
connotations as those of the 
cross. We do not want to be- 
come the worshippers of icons 
in either instance but it must 
be admitted that the symbol^ 
ism held in each is different. 
Let us not put CLC before 
Christ. vMrnMBnaaaHi^

Opposition To New Apt. Restrictions 


I was particularly disturbed 
when I read the memo sent to 
the student body concerning 
members of the opposite sex 
visiting the McAfee Apart- 
ments. It would seem to me 
that with the distinction of 
being an upperclassman and 
also the tenant of the McAfee 
Apartments, it would entitle 
one to respect and trust not 
otherwise given underclass- 

men. When a person reaches 
the age of 21 this constitutes, 
at least outside of our college 
community, the ability to han- 
dle responsibility and account 
for one's own actions. 

If you treat college people 
like high school students you 
will get behavior of high 
school students. As for my- 
self, though, I would never do 
anything "to hurt my own rep- 
utation or that of someone I 
care for." P S P

kelson Optimistic About 
'65 Tennis Team Future 

With three returning letter- 
men and several new additions 
to this year's tennis squad, 
Coach Nelson is looking for- 
ward to an improvement over 
last year's 1-8 record. 

Forming the nucleus of the 
team arejettermen Jim Riggs, 
Phil Dormire. and Fred Johns- 
ton. Other strong additions 
to the team are Jim Moreland. 
a freshman who is playing 
number one position on the 
team; Greg Davis, a transfer 
from Pierce Junior Coflege; 
and Mark Reitan , who came 
out late due to his basketball 
activities, but should help 
the team tremendously . Other 
members of the team include 
Ralph Korstad, Jeff LiUich, 
and Bob Detherage. 

Although losing to a very 

strong Cal Tech team last 
Friday (9-0), the squad is still 
very optimistic. Cal Tech is 
rated one of the top Southern 
California teams and certainly 
the toughest team that Cal 
Lutheran will face this year. 
The next meet will be at 
Pasadena College on March 12. 

The rest of the meets are as 
follows: Westmont. March 19; 
Chapman. March 20; Cal Poly 
Pomona. March 24; Cal Poly 
Pomona, April 2; BIOLA. April 
3; Pasadena. April 8; BIOLA, 
April 24: Chapman, May 1; 
Pomona. May 7; Westmont, 
May 8. 

The ladder at the present 
time stands at: (l) Jim More- 
land; (2) Jim Riggs; (3) Greg 
Davis; (4) Phil Dormire; (5) 
Mark Reitan (6) Fred Johnston.

A.I.M. Forms To Spur 
Academic Activities 

Seeks Student Support For Commission Status 

A student initiative group, 
A.I.M. , has formed to take upon 
itself the responsibility of 
creating a hopeful answer to 
an acute problem on the campus 
of CLC. Its goals are that of 
increased student responsi- 
bility in the area of extra-cur- 
ficular academic activities 
including those of campus dia- 
logue, a closer student-faculty 
relationship and a well plan- 
ned lecture series. 

At this time there is no focal 
point of student planning and 
organization in this vital as- 
pect of student life; more pre- 
cisely there is a lack of repre- 
sentation of the academic-cul- 
tural areas on the Student 
Council. With this in mind 
A.I.M. has formed with the 
goal of liacing before the stu- 
dent body a petition for amend- 
ment to the constitution which 
would create such a committee 
("commission")on the Student 
Council. This requires an af- 
firmative vote of two-thirds of 
the student body. Recognizing 
also the need for study into 
practical ways in which such 
a commission could meet the 
needs on campus, the commit- 
tee consulted students, faculty 
and administration for ideas 
and experience in this area 
and, incidentally, receiving 
enthusiastic support from all 
three of these groups. The re- 
sults of this study are now 
being condensed into a pro- I 

posal which will be presented 
to the Student Council along 
with the petition and will, we 
hope, provide a framework for 
the future commissioner to 
build upon. 

Information regarding some 
of the proposed programs of 
the commission will soon be 
distributed throughout the cam- 
pus and it takes little insight 
to see that such functions can 
only lead to an enrichment of 
student life and would become 
a valuable asset to the campus 
community as a whole. A.I.M. 
will ask that a special election 
be held before that of the gen- 
eral election on April 2, thus 
allowing for the election of a 
Commissioner of Academic 
Affairs on the latter date and 
providing him with all the time 
possible for the work of organ- 
izing his committee and plan- 
ning his programs which will 
be an ambitious task. 

A.I.M. will then have dope 
all that it can and the final de- 
cision rests with you at the 
polls, fellow students. A de- 
feat at the polls of such an 
amendment merely for the lack 
of obtaining the required vote 
of the student body would be 
a blow at the honor and aca- 
demic integrity of the students 
at CLC. Your participation in 
this campaign is invited and 
your responsible vote is called 
for in this vital decision.

Professor James G. Kallas, 
assistant professor in theolo- 
gy at California Ltitheran Col- 
lege, has received notice that 
Westminister Press, Phila- 
delphia. Pennsylvania, has 
officially accepted his book- 
length manuscript on the theo- 
logy of the apostle Paul en- 
titled The Satanward V iew; 
A Study in Pauline Theology . 

The book will go into produc- 
tion immediately with publica- 
tion alated for the spring of 
1966- Roland Tapp, editor of 
Westminister press, in a letter 
to Mr. Kallas, stated. "Let 
me again say that I am de- 
lighted with what you have 
done, and I am confident that 
it will provoke some hard 
thinking in American theolo- 
gical circles..." 

According to Pastor Kallas, 
the substance of his recent 
book on the theology of Paul 
grew out of a series of lec- 
tures given last summer at 
the invitation of the LCA at 
its Pacific Lutheran Theolo- 
gical Seminary in Berkeley. 

Professor Kallas. whose 
book The Significance of the 
Synoptic Miracles, published 

in England in 1961. received 
excellent reviews around the 

world, has written articles 
about to be published in nu- 
merous theological publica- 
tions. Neu> Testament Studies, 
published in Cambridge, Eng- 
land, will print the article 
"Romans 13:1-7: An Inter- 
polation" in the March issue. 
The Lutheran Quarterly March 
issue will contain "Christi- 
anity's Achilles' Hell," while 
the article "State School 
Versus Christian College 
Education" will appear in the 
April Dialog published in 
Chicago. The Concordia Theo- 
logical Monthly intends to 
feature "The Core of Luther- 
anism." written by Mr . Kallas, 
in the near future.

"Never before, to our 
knowledge," Brack said, " 
a student travel program been 
proposed at such reduced 
prices. Students and their 
parents have long realized 
that travel would be a valu- 
able addition to thei. formal 
education, but the cost has 
often been beyond reach." 

In addition to the budget 
avdantages to the program. 
Brack panted out that the 
area involved. South America, 
is of timely significance. 
"This is a vast continent of 
growing economic importance 
and interest to the United 
States. Braniff's own recent 

large gains in business and 
tourist travel between the 
U.S. and South America re- 
flect this fact. We at Braniff 
feel that young students 
should be encouraged and 
have the opportunity to learn 
of these countries and their 
people on a first-hand basis." 

On March 21, at 7:00 p.m. 
Christian Fellowship will 
sponsor the showing of Ingmar 
Bergman's controversial eight- 
y minute film Winter Light in 
the Little Theatre. Bergman 
tries to realize true film art 
thru a deep personal vision, 
which is expressed in a series 
of questions put to Eternity 
and Mankind. Bergman dis- 
tains the creation of com- 
mercial films; with this at- 
titude Bergman feels free to 
bolt from the confines of ex- 
act reproduction of reality, 
and liberated from having to 
conform to story telling tech- 
niques of contemporary thought 
and literary convention. All 
this has led his critics to 
praise his moral Christian 
Themes or to condemn his 
dangerous social criticism 
which is permeated by mys- 
tery, and detachment from 

Winter Light is a dramatic 
emotional examination of the

this is a religion theme, the

ience." Faculty members who

In Appreciation 

The staff of the Mountclef 
Echo wishes to extend its 
most sincere thanks to the 
management of the Conejo 
News, who one hour from press 
deadline informed the Editor 
of this publication that they 
had no facilities to print a six 
page newspaper. Thirty-six 
hours earlier the plan for pub- 
lication of this edition were 
confirmed by the Conejo News. 

For this reason the reader 
of the last issue may have 
found its contents packed in 
like sardines into a can. This 
is hte result of reducing asix- 
page paper to four pages in 
less than an hour.

Two new organizations made their 
debut within the last two weeks on 
the CLC campus. Sponsored by the 
Conejo Valley YMCA, the College 
"Y" has held two meetings with 
favorable student participation re- 
sponse. Struggling for formation with 
an estimated 15 students is the 
"Circle K." sponsored by the Ki- 
wanis of Oxnard. California. 

The College *'Y' is presently 
under the leadership of a student 

steering committee, and they have 
completed the drafting of their con- 
stitution. Their first open meeting 
developed a dialogue on the subject 
"Conservatism verses Liberalism." 

In its last meeting yesterday, the 
topic "Church College, Why" as- 
sumed that Christian education no 
longer has a place in a modern me- 
chanistic society. Both meetings 
fostered controvers ial d iscussion 
remarks . Both meetings were also 

well attended, according to the 
group's leaders. 

Program emphasis of the "Y" will 
center on controversial and stimula- 
ting topics through open forum dis- 

"Circle K," an all male organiza- 
tion, met with Circle K members 
from Ventura College and Cal Poly 
at San Luis Obispo at its first meet- 
ing. The group needs at least 15 
members to form permanently and 
will be eventually restricted in mem- 

bership through selection processes. 
The main function of the organiza- 
tion will be service to the campus, 
community, and through fraternal 
activities, society as a whde. ac- 
cording to supporters of the group. 
The College "Y" meets regularly 
every other Thursday with its next 
meeting on April 7, 8:00 p.m. in the 
CUB. "Circle K" will probably meet 
en Tuesdays, however, the group 
will be announcing their meetings 
as they continue to organize. 



Appllcations for the Bell Mem- 
orial Scholarship may now be 
submitted. The scholarship is 
open to a senior who has been 
accepted at a recognized med- 
ical school. Letters of appli- 
cation should be addressed to 
the Financial Aid Office. 


juniors are requested to call 
the Registrar's Office immed- , 
lately to make an appointment 
for a junior Credit Check. The 
credit check will allow juniors 
to ilan their senior year pro- 
gram, avoiding the possibility 
of "not graduating due to un- 
fulfilled requirements."

The device, called "Pocke-

When the student tilts the 
wristwatch, a roll of paper 
(which could contain such 
things as equations, formulas, 
and historical dates) glides 
past a transparent window on 
the top of the cigaret pack- 
size device. 

Brochures were received 
last week by students at North- 
western University. Evanston,

vealed in a story in the student 
newspaper, the Daily North- 

The originator of the device, 
a 27-year old Seattle man, 
claims it was not designed for 
cheating. But. he adds, "it 
doesn't take a genius to real-

for cheating." He said that he

students could study during 
time they might otherwise 

Seattle officials who have 
investigated the device and the 
way in which it is being mar- 
keted, say they see nothing 
illegal about it. Postal author- 
ities also have made an inves- 
tigation, and they. too. say it 
seems to be legal enough. 

The inventors of the device 
say they haven't received 
enough orders to date to begin 
manufacture. "You know." 
said one of them, "we didn't 
mean to alarm anyone."

SFARB Discussion Highlights 
Meeting of Students, Faculty 

ED. NOTE: The following article was first reported in the

Minn. The topic under study is that of Concordia's honor code being 
discussed at a Student-Faculty forum, which meets ueekl\. Persons 
identified in the article are students, faculty and administrational 

Highlighting the informal dis- 
cussion at the student-faculty 
forum last Tuesday evening was 
a discussion of the Student-Fac- 
ulty Responsibility Board (SF- 
ARB). Typical of the discussion 
was as follows: 

I Gary Olson: Ihe honor system 
at the present time is not being 
adequately supported. 

Dave Lerberg. SFARB chair- 
man: What do you mean by lack 
of support? 

Olson: Indifference. 

Dr. Walther Prausnilz; I don't 
see what Mr. Olson is driving at. 
Lack of support doesn't mean 
the situation is getting worse; 
rather, support among faculty 
and students has been growing. 

Lerberg: In a recent national 
survey, colleges with honors sys- 
tems had a far lower percentage 
of academic dishonesty. 

Dr. Raymond Farden: The sys- 
tem has one fatal weakness — the 
obligation of students to report 
on fellow students. Another con- 
sideration — in an academic com- 
munity any aspersions cast upon 
fellow students are of extreme 
importance. A system like this 
gives ot the student the power 
to very seriously affect the 
future of his classmates.

Two students from Luther 
College spent a year in Eng-

bulletin last year: "Spend a 
year in England . . . Serve at 
Hothorpe Hall . . . Strengthen 
your faith in Christ." 

Arriving in England, Bill Beyer

iors, found their duties at 
Hothorpe Hall to include leader^ 
ship among olher student vol- 
unteers. Daily devotions, Bible 
camps, and long discussions of 
theology mixed with dishes and 
activity supervision kept Bill and 
Jim busy for a year. 

As Lois V. Tangjerd of Luther 
College comments: "... it is 
giving more than receiving. For 
the person who attends it is 
broadening him and making him a 
better person. For the Luther 
student it is a test of his foith."

A CLC co-ed recently met 
the efforts of the CLC Busi-

After a lengthy interro-

presented a quickly scrib-

be signed by the student, con- 
firming that she had received 
two manilla envelopes. 

No one was pleased by the 
event as it was time consum- 
ing, wasting a good half hour 
of rather expensive employee 
wages. However, the event 
was indicative of the Col-

save a nickel here and there, 
but also to know what it was 

spent for.

Redlands Tops CLC Nine 8-4; 
Kingsmen Face Cal-Poly Today 

Redland University scoring three runs in each of the third 
and fourth ifihings took advantage of erratic pitching and three 
throwing miscues to pound out an 8-4 victory over the CLC nine. 

Redlands started the scoring in the first inning en three 
straight hits and one run off Kingsmen starter and loser Butch 

CLC bounced back with a run of its own in the bottom of 
the second inning when Bob Hendricks, leading off, walked, 
stole second and was singled home by Lynn Thompson. 

In the bottom of the fourth, trailing 4-1, the Kingsmen 
scored two runs when, with two outs, Kempfert walked, Paul 
Hasselback reached first on an error, and Bob Trevathan dou- 
bled deep to left field, scoring both runners to bring CLC within 
in one run of Redlands. 

This, however, was as close as the Kingsmen nine was to 
come, as in the top of the fifth Redlands scored three runs on 
two singles, a double, a walk and a wild throw. 

Both teams added another run in the later innings. The 
Kingsmen scored their run in the eighth on a walk to Dave 
Lind. a single by Thompson and a run producing single by Gene 
Ashmore. Redlands added its run in the ninth on two walks and 
a wild throw. 

In Action Last Week 

In action last week our CLC 
nine drubbed defending SCIAC 
champions Occidental Col- 
lege 7-4 while falling to a 
powerful Cal Poly of San Luis 
Opisbo team 13-1- 

The Cal Poly game saw the 
Kingsmen jump to a 1-0 lead 
in the first inning when lead- 
off hitter Lynn Thumpson 

singled and went to second 
on an error. Dave Regalado 
sacrificed Thompson to third 
and Bob Travathan brought 
him home with another sacri- 

After that the Kingsmen 
found it impossible to score, 
managing only three hits 

after the first inning. Start- 
ing pitcher Al Aronson re- 
ceived the loss. 

The Kingsmen, however, 
came back in fine fashion 
against Occidental in a rain- 
soaked first game of a sched- 
uled doubleheader. 

Occidental grabbed an 
early lead in the first inning 
as Steve Wanless homered for 
the visitors. 

Paul Hasselbach, however, 
put CLC back in the game in 
the bottom half of the inning 
with a deep home run to center 

CLC took command of the 
game in the second inning 
with some daring base running 
which produced two more runs 
in each of the second and 
third innings and one each in 
the fourth and fifth. 

Ace left-hander Bob Grender 
picked up his second win of 
the season by facing 20 bat- 
ters in the five innings he 
worked while striking out eight. 

Top batters for the Kingsmen 
were Dave Regalado and Jim 
Huchthausen. Regalado went 
2-for-2 and Huchthausen went 
2- for- 3. 

What Future In Store For 
Kingsmen Diamond Men 

by Paul Kilbert 
Echo Sports Editor 

Watching our Kingsmen baseballers in their first few games 
of the season gives one the impression that it will take a great 
deal of optimism to predict better than a .500 season. 

But now lets not think that CLC has a poor team. On the 
contrary, every game so far has been exciting and our Kings- 
men have been in evety game right up until the last out. 

What will hurt CLC most is the schedule it will be facing 
in the next two months. 

Besides stepping up in class and facing three NCAA foes 
(Cal Poly, Valley State, and nationally ranked LA State), CLC 
will be placing four games a weekfor most of the season. 

A schedule of this type requires depth in the [itching 
department. The one place where the Kingsmen are very weak. 

Bob Grender and Butch Kempfert are the only two jicthers 
who have shown they are capable of pitching with consistency. 
After them the pitching drops off coisiderably. 

These two men cannot pitch 31 games between them. The 
way the schedule is set they will be lucky to start twenty. 

There are no easy wins left on the schedule; we've played 
Cal Tech and from here on out it will be a never ending up 
hill battle. 

Even though CLC probably will not finish any better than 
.500 this season it must be pointed out that it is much better 
to play teams of higher caliber and lose to the best, than to 
play "rinky dink" schools and beat the worst. If CLC wants to 
grow athletically it must raise its level of competition to the 
highest possible point; but not exceeding its capabilities. 

The team thus far has played exciting baseball under coach 
Shoup. CLC has never proouced a team of this type. There has 
been more stealing, hit and runs, bunts and sacrifices, than ever 
before. All these items make up the ingredients of a good ball 

Attendance has been mediocre thus far. The same faithful 
few show up at every game. These stands should be filled at 
every hame game. We might not have a good won and lost rec- 
ord but this does not mean the team is poor. This in fact is the 
best baseball playersCLC has ever put forth. Our players are 
not going to give''the game to the other team, they are going to 
play their hearts out, win or lose. 

One thing I'll guarantee is that if you come to the game 
you will not be disappointed in this year's team. Win or lose 
you won't see a more exciting baseball team anywhere.

Catalogue Shows oross 

Among the numerous problems facing the high school 
graduate, alias potential college student, is that of choos- 
ing a suitable place to commence his higher education. We 
like to think that California Lutheran College is such a 
place. However, upon glancing through the current issue of 
the college catalogue, the prospective CLC student finds a 
number of courses in any of the major disciplines of aca- 
demic endeavor which will be lacking in the semester 
schedule of classes. As a bewildered freehman he will 
learn his first lesson in higher education when he finds that 
three of the seven courses he had planned to take are now 
nowhere to be found in the class schedule. Only the student 
who has faced and weathered such a dilemma knows what a 
harrowing experience it can be- 

To the adaptable and persistent student, the problem 
merely requires another mechanical juggling of classes and 
possibly a change in majors. But to the normal first semes- 
ter frosh, this situation can change his entire outlook on 
his academic future. At times it is something of this nature 
that generates distrust of faculty and administration for the 
remaining portion of his education. But this aspect of the 
problem becomes trivial when compared to the fact that the 
entire problem of academic misrepresentation may act as a 
significant entrance deterrent to students who may have 
previously taken time and interest to plan their curriculum 
based on the information found in the college catalogue. 

For example, try to find any of these courses listed in 
the semester schedule of classes. Vertebrate Histology, 
Vertebrate Embryology, and General Entomology, are listed 
in the catalogue as offered specifically in 19B4-5. Other 
listed but unoffered courses cover the entire spectrum of 
the academic community. Among these are Political Socio- 
logy, Mental Hygiene, American Government and Business, 
Latin American Government, a number of anthropology 
courses, American Economy, and Argumentation and Debate, 
to name just a few. 

Immediately a number of excuses for this obvious mis- 
representation become evident, but all are questionable. 
The fact that the catalogue is written long prior to publi- 
cation and distribution, that there is no need for certain 
listed classes, and the possibility of faculty changes prior 
to publication of the catalogue, are all somewhat valid rea- 
scms. It is true that some of the courses in the catalogue 
are listed as "offered upon demand", or "offered alternate 
years", but many courses carry no such designation and 
are not offered. Perhaps it would be wiser to omit question- 
able course offerings firom the catalogue, and add them later 
to the schedule of classes if they are to be offered, an order 
to avoid this costly misrepresentation. 

Related to this same problem of misrepresentation is 
the ambigiuty of college graduation requirements. For ex' 
ample, only 16 units of humanities are required, however, 
the college also requires that two semesters of freshman 
English be taken (6 units) along with two years of a foreign 
language (16 units). All math majors and some of the rest 
of us will recognize that this adds up to 22 units, leaving 
no time to explore further the vast realm of the humanities. 

As this academic misrepresentation hurts only us as 
students, it becomes our responsibility to see that the 
necessary changes are effected. Action taken on this pres- 
sing problem is bound to touch on every phase of the col- 
lege curriculum, and every student within its walls. 

Editor's Note: 

The controversy over the rigidly enforced religion re- 
quirement at California Lutheran has recently brought itself 
to the ECHO in the form of numerous letters to the Editor. The 
ECHO has selected for publication one letter representing 
each possible point of view in hopes of acquainting the gene- 
ral student body with the problem.

Kingsmen Speak Out Concerning 
Mandatory Religion Requirement 




A situation has confronted 
me recently which began as a 
thorn in the side of many Cal. 
Lutheran students, but which 
has now developed into an 
ugly cancer, and which has 
^adversely affected the attitude 
of these students toward both 
certain members of the admin- 
istration and toward the col- 
lege as awhole. ! am speaking 
specifically of the religion 
requirement now strictly en- 
forced upon the students of 
lower division standing. The 
regulation states that all stu- 
dents (regular), either entering 
freshmen or transfering stu- 
dents, must enroll in at least 
one of the four lower division 
religion courses, namely Re- 
ligion I. II. 51, and 5.2, per 
semester until all of these 
courses have been completed. 

Such a. stipulation seems 
entirely in orderto those plan- 
ning to graduate from this in- 
stitution. However, it is con- 
cerning the case of those stu- 
dents who do not plan to grad- 
uate from Cal. Lutheran for 
which I accuse this require- 
ment of being completely out 
of order and for which I accuse 
those of the administration 
who are enforcing this require- 
ment of being thoroughly un- 
discerning and unreasonable. 

Those students desiring to 
explain their reasons for not 
taking one of these required 
courses appealed to the regis- 
trar and were shuttled to the 
Dean of Students where ALL 
appeals were denied- regard- 
less of the situation. The 
answer given to all was that 
the requirement is a rule of 
the college and MUST be fol- 
lowed without exception. It 
is against this seemingly big- 
oted attitude that I am raising 
this objection. 

One gathers from observing 
this situaticn that religious 
instruction is being forced up- 
on many of the students of 
California Lutheran College. 
This statement may seem a 
bit strong, however, such is 
the case. To use crass terms ■ 
it appears that religion is 
being forced down the throats 
of these students: and, it is 
a well known fact that those 
things which are "forced" 
down the throat of an individual 
have a tendency to choke him. 
I hate to see religion thrown 
into this position. If anything 
should be left up to the choice 
of the person involved, it 
should be the choice of relig- 
ion. To force religious in- 
struction upon an individual 
creates a negative cathexis 
within that student toward re- 
ligion, and such action is not 
only self-defeating, but also 
contributive to the destruction 
of healthy attitudes of students 
toward religion. The motto of 
this college states that "Love 
of Christ. Truth, and Free- 
dom" summarizes the purpose 
of CLC; but love of Christ is 
not born of enforced slavery to 
rigid regulations: nor is free- 
dom bred of enforced condit- 
ioning to fractional opinions; 
and likewise truth is prevented 
by arbitrary and unrevisable 

The several students which 
have refused tb enroll in re- 
ligion courses for reasons of 
transfering to other institu- 
tions received today in their 
mailboxes a curt little note 


With due respect to all per- 
sons involved in the contro- 
versy over the present policy 
of the religion requirement at 
CLC, I express my opinion in 
this matter. It seems that cer- 
tain people are dissatisfied 
with this administrative policy 
because it "forces" religion 
down the throats of those who 
are not planning to graduate 
from this institution. If this 
were the case. I could well 
urlderstand their position. But 
the current CLC catalogue 
makes it very clear that relig- 
ion is a MUST for students at 
CLC. whether planning to grad- 
uate from here or not! Anyone 
who feels that this requirement 
is too much for them to take, 
regardless of the grounds they 
stand on. should transfer to a 
college more to their liking. 
Of course, many will say that 
this would not be possible for 
a variety of reasons. This can- 
not be blamed on the adminis- 
tration. This school has certain 
obligations to everyone con- 
cerned in this matter to be 
sure, but the policy of requir- 
ing a certain number of religion 
units cannot be done away 
with just because a certain few 
find it to their disliking. If 
this were the way things were 
done, this school would not 
have grown at all. We would 
have been so locked up in petty 
matters and quarrels, that 
building would have been an 
impossibility to say the least. 
But this brings another prob- 
lem to mind for me. People 
who say that this religion re- 
quirement should be revised 
to accomodate persons not 
planning to continue at this 

college may be completely 
honest in their reasons. But 
is this the real reason in all 
cases for doing away with this 
requirement? Or are some peo- 
ple afraid to learn what they 
really want to know about God 
and His Word. 1 am firmly con- 
vinced that the problems that 
we face in this world today are 
a direct result of man's turning 
away from God's divine glory 
and power. I do not say this in 
empty words because it does 
not take a person long to find 
where problems are and why 
they exist. Man in all corners 
of the globe are confronted 
with problems every day and 
tlie unly way that we as Chris- 
tians and human beings can 
help each other is to turn to 
God and the divine Word He 
has given us In the scriptures. 
But it takes teaching to show 
us how to read and interpret 
the Bible. Whether or not you 
or I agree with a professor in 
religious interpretation is not 
relevant; what is is the Bible 
as God's Word and the basic 
understanding which we as 
students at CLC need to learn 
to go as soldiers of Christ out 
into the world spreading this 

I cannot agree to changing 
the religious requirement of 
CLC in the ways I have heard 
from some people. To me this 
is a fundamental necessity for 
students here at CLC and the 
need of the world toda^'. With- 
out this teaching passed down 
through the centuries of time, 
I dare not think what the 
world would be today. No, we 
need this religion requirement 
so verv much. 

James Riggs 

from the administration stat- 
ing, in essence, that they 
have been dropped from the 
roles of this college. Of 
course, the administration 
was kind enough to stipulate 
an escape route for these 
students; all they must do is 
enroll immediately (only two 
weeks tardy) in one of the 
required religion courses. 

If this regulation is to be 
bigot ediy and shortsightedly 
enforced without regard to the 
individual situation, let us 
follow this line of thought 
to its logical extreme. Why 
stop at simply requiring re- 
ligion courses of all students 
each semester? Why. let us 
have an inquisition! Let us 
bind the agnostic students on 
the campus and burn them at 
the stake as witches for their 
beliefs. We might possibly 
even be allowed to initiate a 
crusade against the infidel 
state colleges and universi- 
ties because they do not in- 
clude religious instruction in 
their curricula. Ah. but we 
must first have a martyr, and 
the administration is con- 
veniently providing us with 
just that in the personage of 
the students the administra- 
tion is academically cruifying 
because they will not be 
quietly forced into the re- 
quired religion courses. This 
train of logic is cbviously 
ridiculous, but no more so 
than the policy the adminis- 
tration is pursuing. 

The students, not the ad- 
ministration or the class- 
rooms, make up a college; and 
the wishes of the students 
should be the deciding factor 

in action taken by the college 
as a whole, or by the adminis- 
tration, as long as those 
wishes are reasonable, and 
the wishes forwarded in this 
letter are entirely reasonable 
and right. College regulations 
should be for the purpose of 
guiding and aiding the stu- 
dent in his academic endeav- 
ors. NOT to cripple the at- 
tempts for success. Right 
regulations are not those 
which are unrevisable or bi- 
goted, but those which can 
intrinsically deal fairly and 
adequately with the individual 
needs and desires and plans 
of all students. If the reader 
disagrees. by all means 
please speak out, as is your 
right and duty. 

This problem should, and 
must be rectified IMMEDI- 
ATELY. The administration 
cries for student coopera- 
tion, and I likewise admonish 
the administration to cooper- 
ate with the students- with 
each student to the fullest 
possible extent, as is its 
duty. I do not call for any 
drastic revision of college 
regulations, but rather for a 
simple and painless redirec- 
tion of administrative policy 
concerning this regulation. 
There is no place here for 
ultimatums and academic 
penalty. There is no place 
here for administrative re- 
fusal to treat each student as 
he rightly deserves and de- 
mands. At least, such poli- 
cies as these cannot be car- 
ried further without a drastic 
and complete rewording of the 
motto of our college.

Presentation Of Faculty 
Delightfully Entertaining 

One of the more outstanding 
contributions to the Letter- 
man's Club Spectacular, held 
last Saturday evening in the 
college gym-auditorium, ivas 
the aipearance of four promi- 
nent faculty members. Rep- 
resenting tfie social science 
department was Dr. Leo Bar- 
anski. who presented one of 
his typically intellectual and 
thou^t provoking lectures 
that thoroughly confused the 
audience, as it usually does 
his psychology classes. 

Mrs. Gaby Von Breyman. 
representing the humanities 
division, was next to appear. 
Smiling her usual sweet smile, 
Mrs. Von Breyman suffered a 
cramp in her foot during the 
last verse of Sweet Violets. 
The audience failed to notice 
that her smile changed abrupt- 
ly to a painful grimace. 

Mrs. Jeanne Bosco, rep- 
resenting the Physical Educa- 
tion department, impressed 
all with one of her graceful, 
flowing creative dance rou- 
tins, and her passes at Pastor 
Kallas who made his grand 

Laura Scudder Shot! 

The entire Associated Stu- 
dent Body of CaliCornia Luth- 
eran College is mouniing the 
passing of Laura Scudder. who 
was fatally wounded by a bul- 
let fired by Granny Goose, 
last Saturday evening in the 
course of the Lettermen's 

Eye witneeses at the scene 
said that Miss Scudder crashed 
the show in the middle of 
Granny Goose's commercial, 
openly challenged Miss Goose 
by saying that her potato chips 
were better. Granny then, in a 
fit of rage, drew a concealed 
pistol and fired the fatal shot.

Other acts oi hand were 
Little Beaver and the Pelts, 
direct from El Monte Legion 
Stadium, Russian Ballet stars 
Paulina Christenov and Ste- 
phen Grosschev, and Granny 
Goose, maker of those world 
famous "adult" pdato chips. 

Some hope had been raised 
that the discovery cculd be 
kept secret, but after high- 
level meetings, it was de- 
cided to make the facts 
known, so that a repeat of the 
incident could be avoided. 

The dqje was found in 
Mountclef Inn, the boys* dor- 
mitory, renewing the faith of 
women's dorm officers, who 
had previously been quoted 
as saying. "We just know 
none of our girls are mixed 
up in this." 

The dorm council in Mount- 
clef Inn was in session at 
press time, reportedly trying 
to draft a resolution explain- 
ing the situation. None of the 
CLC men were able to pin- 
paint any information as to 
the exact whereabouts (room 
number, et cetera) of the dope, 
however it was generally 
assumed that Someone knew. 

Luckily, a staff writer was 
able to be present when the 
dope was apprehended, and 
obtained the following on-the- 
spct interview. That informa- 
tion, a nationwide scoop for 
the Ec ho, i s presented here-

The Books Are In Now 

Spread the news! The Col- 
lege Bookstore has recently 
received a shipment of text 
books. Included in this ship- 
ment are all the books that the 
students have been waiting 
"patiently" to buy since the 
semester began last February. 
There was. until time of the 
announcement, a rumor that 
there would be a sit-in or boy- 
cott staged against the book- 
store, if the books did not 
arrive soon. 

Conditions in the academic 
world were so bad that certain 
professors ordered the texts 
for their students, thus bypas- 
sing the middleman bookstore. 

Itcan only be coincidental that 
prices for the books quoted to 
the professors were consider- 
ably lower than students are 
accustomed to paying at the 
College Bookstore. 

Another rumor confirmed in 
the same announcement was 
that all merchandise in the 
bookstore will be sold at whole- 
sale prices. This means that 
the students will no longer pay 
twice the regular price for 
such things as school supplies 
and cosmetics. Students who 
are strong supporters of the 
theory that the college would 
never relinquish their 507o pro-

Academic Changes For Fall 
'65 Announced By Dean 

In a chapel address last 
Thursday morning. Dr. Bernard 
Hillila, Dean of California Lu- 
theran College, explained a 
number of academic changes 
planned for the fall semester 
of 1965. 

The tone of the address was 
set with a sunmary of the re- 
search carried on this past 
semester by a faculty-admini- 
stration committee in relation 
to the growing needs of Calif- 
ornia Lutheran. Dr. Hillila 
stated that the college is ex- 
pecting a 22% increase in total 
enrollment next year, from the 
present number of 736 students 

to 900 in the fall. The entire 
realm of planning is based on 
an estimated maximum enroll- 
ment of2500 full time students, 
and possibly half that many 
part time students five or six 
years from now. 

The Dean explained that the 
planned move to the North 
Campus "is scheduled for the 
fall of 1967, or shortly there- 
after," and for that reason 
there would be no major expan- 
sion of classroom facilities 
on the South Campus in the 
next two years. 

Students returning to CLC 
will continue their education 
during a five and one half day 
academic week. A lD%increase 
over present academic facili- 
ties will be made possible by 
offering classes during the 
Saturday morning hours. Dean 
Hillila cited as an example, a 
Freshman English class, nor- 
mally meeting Monday. Wednes- 
day and Friday might meet on 
Tuesday, Thursday, and Sat- 
urday. Present facilities will 
also be increased by 13% by 
scheduling of additional clas- 
ses during the afternoon and 
evening hours. These plans 
have been laid for expansion 
two years in the future, to 
keep the amount of academic 
alterations required during that 
period to a minimum. 

As an extra supplement to 
educational offerings, the col- 

lege has approved our partici- 
pation with the University of 
Redlands in a foreign study 
program at Tours, France, dur 
ing the summer of 1966. 

Earlier in the session Pres- 
ident Raymond Olsen announ- 
ced ttiat there would be some 
expansion on the South Campus 
to meet current needs. During 
the summer an additional sci- 
ence laboratory will be added 
to the present science building 
and the stage area in the gym- 
auditorium will be extended to 
provide more working space 
for the Drama and Music De- 
partments. There is also a 
planned expansion of the lib- 
rary facilities. Dean Gangsei 
noted that the college admini- 
stration has signed a contract 
with Mr. McAfee, who is cur- 
rently leasing a number of 
units to the college, to lease 
2/3 of a 42-room housing com- 
plex scheduled for com[ietion 
at the end of the summer; and 
it is probable that the rest of 
the space would be leased to 
the college if necessary. This 
step is intended to ease the 
crowded dormitory conditions 
that would otherwise be incur- 
red by the increased enrollment. 

President Olson announced 
that there would be an assem- 
bly on April 23 to inform the 
student body on developments 
in the Master Planning of Cal- 
ifornia Lutheran College.

Minstrel Show Not Offensive 

by Tom Salminen 

Echo Entertainment Editor 

On Saturday the Letterman*s 
Club put on a "Spectacular" 
insteadofthe "Minstrel Show" 
which had been scheduled. It 
would seem that the ugly head 
of the racial questionhas been 
raised on the CLC campus. 
The question that comes to 
mind is whether this is truly 
a valid questioi and for that 
matter a valid solution for the 

Three CLC students brou- 
ght this matter before the stu- 
dent council meeting of March 

15th, charging that in view of 
the current national situation 
and CLC's relationship to it, 
the minstrel show presented 
a degrading view of the negro 
citizen and in effect was dis- 
criminatory. The student coun- 
cil then recommended to the 
lettermen by a fifty per-cent 
affirmative vote to cancel the 
show; this action along with 
rumors that if it weren't can- 
celed administrative action 
might be taken has created a 
problem which is false and 
erroneous to the CLC environ- 
ment. This action ruined the 
objective of the Minstrel Show, 
causing the necessity of its 
being canceled due to people 
coming to see its controversial 

One point must be conceded; 

that Thomas D. (daddy) Rice, 
one of the founders of minst- 
rel shows, did depict the sing- 
ing and dancing of an old, 
deformed, decrepit negro in 
his minstrel activities. Stephen 
Foster seems to say the same 
thing in his letter to E.P. 
Christy in May of 1852: he 
states that the "trashy" and 
"really offensive words of 
some songs" in the past was 
the reason he left his name 
off his published songs, but 
he further relates a change of 
attitude taking place by 1852, 
when he says that he had done 
a great deal to build up taste 
for the songs among the refined 
people, who had objected, by 
making the words suitable and 
concluded the statement by re- 
questing that his name now be 
included, so he might make the 
business live. 

The majority of the audien- 
ces today do not view the min- 
strel show as a racially dis- 
criminating situation. The pre- 
vention of this entertainment 
vehicle is strongly suggestive 
of an entertainment book-burn- 
ing situation permitted by the 
neanderthal personality exist- 
ing during the 1930*s in Nazi 
territory; it should and can 
never be per-mittedin the Amer- 
ican college community of 
which CLC is a part. 




CLC book services n\ay change 
hands as the recent shift in the 
food sefvice. Rumors claim the op- 
eration and management of the CLC 
bookstore will soon- return to the 

Student and faculty discontent 
with book services have resulted 
in discussions between the Col- 
lege and the bookstore leasers, the 
Don McCleans, according to CLC 
administrative officials. 

In an exclusive interview with 
the president of the College, it has 
been learned that the McClean's 
have a five-year lease with the 
College [or the operation and man- 
agement of the bookstore. Dr. Olsen 
confirmed some discussions had 
taken place, however the College 
is not in a position to act any fur- 
ther at this time. Three years of the 
five-year lease have yet to expire. 

Bookstore personnel have confir- 
med some discussions have taken 
place, but the nature of these talks 
has not been disclosed. 

According to another CLC admin- 
istrative official, it is believed the 
College will soon beable to provide 
better service for its students . 
Bookstore personnel contend many 
of the delays are due to a failure of 
some faculty members in ordering 
books ahead of lime and in suf- 
ficient numbers. Other delays in- 
clude arrangements with publishers. 
At press time, no other detailed 
information was available for de- 
lays in book shipments. 

Rumors claim the bookstore lease 
has been broken and a date set for 
college operation before the end of 
this year. Neither administrative 
nor bookstore personnel confirmed 
any truth in the rumor, but were 
careful to point out that discussions 
have taken place. 

According to several faculty mem- 
bers. CLC book service is not su- 
fficient or efficient enough to serve 
the needs of the CLC student body. 

CLC leased bookstore rights in 
1963 after two years of College op- 
eration under the management of 
Miss Esther Keeler. At that time 
the bookstore was located where 
the Kingsmen Campus Shop is now 
situated. The McClean lease saw 
the bookstore expanded and moved 
to the present circular building in 
the Centrum. 

The McCleans live in Northrldge 
where they also operate another 
bookstore in addition to the local 
Kingsmen Campus Shop. Mr. Don 
McClean is a member of the CLC 
Board of Regents. 


Issue Gains 

Discussion among the women stu- 
dents of CL^ concerning the col- 
lege policy on smoking is presently 
reaching a boiling point. 

A petition being circulated 
among the students, both male and 
female, is gaining rapid support for 

by Stanley F. Kano 

the position that the female popu- 
lace be granted the opportunity to 
decide whether or not they are in 
favor of the Regent's ruling on the 
smoking policy. 

In an exclusive interview with 
the proponents of the issue, this 
writer has teamed that the petition 
does not condemn the smoking rul- 
ing, but expresses tj)e desire of 
the students to make their own 
decision, the petition, at pres* 
time, contained the signatures of 
approximately 200 persons. 

Proponents say their action is 
being directed towards the adminis- 
tration and the Board of Regents. 
The issue may well extend beyond 
these two groups into the Church- 
at-large as no other ALC or LCA 
college allows women to smoke on 
the campus. 

Some Lutheran schools, particu- 
larly in the midwest, forbid smok- 
ing on or off campus for any reason. 
If properly handled, the CLC turmoil 
could possibly offset other Luther- 
an schools in a general movement 
for national recognition of Church 
impositions on existing social prac- 

One CLC co-ed commented," Let 
the boys decide what they want 
their girls to do," when asked for 
her position on the issue. 

A counter movement headed by 
Karen Satrum has created slight 
opposition against the earlier pe- 

tition, supporting the [resent policy 
and condemning the action of the 
estrlier petition. At press time it 
was learned that approximately an 

equal number of 200 signatures were 
also received. 

It is rumored that the Satrum 
movement would be directed through 
Student Council rather than the di- 
rective action of the proponents. 

According to reliable sources, 
faculty members seem to be in gen- 
eral sympathy with the proponents 
of the issue. 

College - 


"There is no lack of interest, but 
a question of how do we go about 
doing," remailted Dr. Raymond Ol- 
son in an exclusive interview when 
asked for his comments regarding 
an apparent problem in communica- 
tions between students, faculty and 
administrative personnel. 

According to Dr. Olson, the ad- 
ministration is taking every possible 
step at this time in promoting great- 

canfipus life 

Stall Kano / ECHO Section Editor 



By Stan Kano 

One of the more pressing issues developing on the 
campus is the question of constitution. Two and one- 
half weeks ago. a new constitution was proposed, 
backed with petitions containing the signatures of 
235 students. 

The petitions called for an election of the student 
body on an attached proposed constitution before the 
end of the semester. The petitions were presented but 
not submitted to Student Council in a special session 
on March 17. 

Student Council voted to form a Constitutional Com- 
mittee or Convention in which points of constitutional 
context would be discussed widely and finalized. Five 
students from each class were appointed by clasg^ 
presidents and submitted to Student Council on March 
22. According to George Engdahl, ASB president, the 
matter was to be given first priority, public meetings 
scheduled and minutes distributed. The convention is 
headed by Lowell Brandt, ASB vice (resident. 

The proposed constitution, drafted within the student 
body by a group of students headed by the author, cal- 
led for a separation of functions in the student body 
government. A new governing body would be formed, 
splitting the present Student Council into two bodies, 
an executive council, and a legislative body, the Sen- 
ate. The proposal called for elections this year with 
institutions beginning in the fall semester. 

Council reaction was mixed. Some were for and some 
against. Most council members desired a time period 
in which members of the student body could discuss 
the constitution. According to Engdahl, a vote should 
be scheduled before the end of this semester on either 
a new constitution or on major revisicns of its present

er dialogue and expression among 
members of the college family. A 

major emphasis with the faculty this 
year was the inauguration and funct- 
ioning of the Faculty'Forum, which 
meets monthly and discusses major 
problems, both campus-wise and 
nationally. Last month's forum dis- 
cussed "Church College," debating 
its essence and need. 

The communications problem, re- 
marked Dr. Olson, is not peculiar 
to CLC, but that we are presently 
involved with matters of how to do 
it rather than its need. One such 
"how to do it" has been the Presi- 
dent's Convocation, called to as- 
sembly by Dean of the College, Dr. 
Bemard Hillila. Both Dr. Hillila and 
Dr. Olson have been planning to 
invite groups of students into Uieir 
homes. Honor students have already 
visited with the llillilasand Student 
Council is planning to return Dr. 
Olson's invitatioi. 

Dr. Olson added that the essence 
of coming together within the com- 
munity must be as persons, not as 
a coming togeUier of problems. It 
should then be possible to share 
evaluations, ideas and comments 
basically from participation, not 
listening, as the present President's

Sociology has often determined the roots of many of 
man's problems via the famous and infamous "Sociological 
survey." However not al! surveys have been able to delve

Christian Campus. 

The following questionnaire was devised originally at 
Luther College and readapted after examing psychological 
implications by this author. This is a sample questionnaire

Council Forms Chest 
Committee - Service 

At a recent student council 
meeting the formation of a 
Student Chest Committee 
marked another step forward 
for student government. The 
committee was organized for 
the purpose of initiating ser- 
vice projects for campus, 
community, national, and inter- 
national benefit. 

The first project of the sem- 
ester will be a fund raising 
drive, scheduled for the late 
evening hours of Wednesday, 
April 7. During this time in- 
terested students will visit 
dormitory rooms seeking fin- 
ancial contributions for the 
fulfillment of the two goals 
chosen by the committee. 
' The money collected will be 
divided between World Cloth- 
ing Fund, and educationally 
sponsored non-profit organiz- 
ation, and the Southern Christ- 
ian Leadership Conference, 
under the direction of Dr. 
Martin Luther King. 

The SCLC has the basic aim 
of achieving full citizenship 
rights, equality for. and inte- 
grations of Negroes, in all as- 
pects of American life. SCLC 
is a service agency to facili- 
tate and coordinate action of 
local community groups within 
the frame of their indigenous 
organizations and natural lead- 
ship. SCLC supports voter 
registration, citizenship clin- 
ics and work-shops on non- 
violences direct action projects 
to end segregation. Merit Em- 
ployment Programs to end job 
discrimination, special edu- 
cational scholarships, legal 
defense and bail for victims 
of racial injustice, and many 
other worthwhile projects. 

The World Clothing Fund 
distributes clothing to child- 
ren and adults, regardless 
of race or creed, in disaster 
areas of the United States and 
overseas. Their relief efforts 
are now centered on the Appa-

A Professors Doubts About Campus Pressure 

Too Busy Studying to Learn to Live 

4 In 35 years of teaching at Wash- 
ington University in St. Louis, Alex- 
ander M. Buchan has become a 
memorable campus figure because 
of his unusual concern for his stu- 
dents. In this article, excerpted from 
the Washington University alumni 
magazine, he raises questions about 
some of the changes taking place in 
American colleges and universities 

Nowadays at Washington Univer- 
sity there is no central meeting place 
for the faculty. There used to be a 
hospitable cafeteria down in the art 
school where we could sit and talk 
with the art and architecture faculty 
and with students in their smocks. 
■And we had a wonderful time. Now 
we are like cliff dwellers on Mesa 
Verde, each division in its own cave. 

This process of isolation is hap- 
pening on every campus that I 
know, and I know a good many. 

Virtue of a Pathway 

As a college grows in size and 
importance, we easily forget the sim- 
ple virtue of a free and open path- 
way between the student and the 
instructor. One of the great merits 
of the American college when I came 
into it a good many years ago was 
that this pathway was wide open, 
easy, and available. 

It doesn't exist any more because 
the professors are too ,busy, and the 
young people are too scared to ap- 
proach them. 

Why Some Weep 

We are compounding the pressure 
that we lay upon our children, and 
it is heartbreaking to watch it show. 
Young folks weep In my office be- 
cause they are disappointing not one 
person but two, both of whom they 
like. I am suggesting that the high 
hopes and fears and ambitions of the 
nice American home may quite 
easily be a serious drag on a young 
person's ability to make his own 
choice, to seek his own path, to be, 
as far as is possible, his own man. 

Another change comes from an 
insistence on what is called the "cult 
of excellence." Schools are raising 
their standards and colleges their 
entrance requirements, whUe indus- 
try and the professions are demand- 
ing more and more training and 
more advanced degrees. We are set- 
ting up constantly higher levels of 
this frightening abstraction called 
excellence, and we are increasing di- 
rectly with this the guilt and the 
anguish of many young people who, 
fine as they are, cannot meet the de- 
mand of specialists In every branch 
of knowledge. 

Obsession With Grades 

The pressure can be dreadful and 
frightening. There is an insistent 
obsession with grades. It used to be 

that C was a creditable grade, and, 
if you were interested in going out 
an evening or two with a boy, you 
could forget your assignment and 
make a C or a B, as the dice of 
an exam fell. I believe this to have 
been a wholesome attitude, this will- 
ingness to sacrifice a Uttle bit of 

Even among our graduate stu- 
dents, we find a willingness to put 
off the decision about choosing an 
area of study or getting a disserta- 
tion done. They postpone the choice 
from year to year, and the period 
of study for the Ph.D. in the human- 
ities grows longer and longer. 


Give "EM A"fbP"^Lii'Z AHt?A 6/6 w^ek-enp A65i^r/iENr 


excellence along one narrow line 
for the sake of a broader purpose. 
The worst result of this insistence 
on excellence lies in a mood fairly 
common on campuses that study Is 
always an unpleasant chore. 

Hard study might be fun if it 
were not for the incessant reckoning 
that has to be made. Across every 
campus move hundreds of young 
people who, in their attitude towards 
learning, are as stale as overtrained 
athletes, too tired, for lack of any 
remission, to rise to the challenge 
of a new idea. 

Some time around March and 
April every year, there occurs an 
affUction arising from a suspicion 
that a major chosen is not a very 
happy one. Accompanying It is a 
trying sense of drift and despera- 
tion, because those older students 
Imow they should make up their 
mind on a particular direction, but 
they do not like courses they are 
taking, and they drift from one class 
to another aimlessly. Some of them, 
unfortunately, run away from the 
despair by getting married— which 
is usually the worst way for a stu- 
dent to escape. 

The longer I teach, the more 
clearly I realize that the row of 
grades which I put down in a note- 
book is not telling me— or anybody 
else— much about my young people. 
Behind this row of figures lies a be- 
wildering confusion of personal di- 
lemmas, interests, tensions, and de- 
sires, all of which have some rele- 
vance to this business of education 
for which I happen in a small way 
to be responsible. The grades are 
not a reliable indicator. 

Role of Relaxation 

study Is only one part— and the 
older I get I think not necessarily 
the more important part — of this 
process that goes on here for several 
years. A great deal of growing up 
has to be done, and our best grow- 
ing may occur during the unhurried 
hours when we are not driven from 
task to task, the hours of free time 
and leisure when, quietly, things soak 

Why should we deny our young 
people the calm hours in which, 
above the tumult and the shouting, 
they hear the still small voice within

Diamond-Men Trounce Biola- Split 
With Claremont In Double-Header 

CLC Baseballers upped their 
season record to 8-7 by taking 
two out of three games last week- 
end. The Klngsnien, trounced 
Blola 13-2 on Friday and split 
a couple of pitching duals with 
Claremont, losing the first 4-3 
and then coming back to win 
the night cap 2-1. 

The KIngsmen literally had a 
field day with the hapless Biola 
team as they scored 1 3 runs 
and pounded out 15 hits. 

CLC got off to a fast start 
by scoring six runs in the first 
inning on as many hits. The high- 
light coming when Jim Huch. 
thausen slammed a bases loaded 
triple to deep right field. 

The KIngsmen then added two 
in each the second, fourth and 
fifth innings, and one lone run 
in the eighth. Biola's two runs 
came in the sixth. 

Lynn Thompson and Bob Trev- 
athan were the top hitters for 
the KIngsmen, each of them go. 
ing 3.for.5 at the plate. Power 
hitting centerfielder Pete Olson 
slammed a two-run round-trip- 
per in the fourth inning. 

Gregory starts 

Mike Gregory, making his first 
starf of the season, baffled Bi. 
Ola hitters for five innings be- 
fore tiring in the sixth. Greg, 
ory picked up his second win 
of the season with relief help 
from Dave Suttora. 

Against Claremont 

In the first game with Clare- 
mont CLC again Jumped out to 
an early lead, this time more 
modest, 1-0 in the first inning. 
Lead-off batter Lynn Thompson 
walked, reached third on a sac 
rifice and an out, and was 
brought home on an infield single

The lead, however, was short 
lived as Claremont scored two 
runs in the top of the third 
when KIngsmen pitcher Bob Gren. 
der gave up four hits before re- 
tiring the side with the bases 

The KIngsmen bounced right 
back In their half of the Inn- 
Ing as Tom Prohaska was safe 
on an error with one out and 
Bob Trevathan ripped a deep 
triple to right centerfleld to knot 
the game. 

In the fifth CLC took the lead 
when Trevathan beat out an in- 
field hit, Bob Hendricks doubled 
to deep right field sending Trev- 
athan to third and an infield out 
scored Trevathan. 

As the game moved into the 
last Inning the KIngsmen held a 
3-2 lead. The Stags, however, 
were not through scoring as abunt 
single, a triple to deep center- 
field and an error produced two 
runs and a Stag lead of 4-3. 

The CLC nine gave It a fight- 
ing try In the bottom half of 
the Inning but it was not enough. 
Trevathan walked to lead off 
the inning, stole second with 
one out, Regalado singled and 
Trevathan was thrown out trying 
ttf score, ending the KIngsmen 
threat. Sophomore Bob G render 
took the loss after allowing six 

Pitcher's duel 
A pitchers duel was the high- 

light of the second game as 
KIngsman Butch Kempfert 
pitched eight masterful Innings, 
allowing only five hits, to give 
CLC a split for the day. 

Both teams were held score- 
less until Claremont opened the 
scoring in the fifth with a run 
on a double, an infield liit and 
a squeeze bunt. 

CLC came right back to knot 
the game in their half of the 
fifth on a balk after succeeding 
walks to Kempfert, Lynn Thomp- 
son and Tom Proshaskahadload- 
ed the bases. 

Claremonts only other scoring 
threat came in the sixth when 
with two outs and a runner on 
first via a single, two succeed- 
ing infield errors loaded the 
bases. Kempfert, however, 
struck out the next Stag batter 
to end the threat. 

In the CLC seventh it looked 
as If the KIngsmen would wrap 
up the game. Thompson singled 
to righ t, Prohaska singled to cen- 

ter, and Trevathan singled to 
right to load the bases. Coach 
Shoup then signaled for the 
squeeze play, but with Thomp- 
son racing home Regalado bunted 
a high outside fastball Into the 
air ajid before Thompson could 
get back to third he was doubled 
up. The KIngsmen still weren't 
through as Hendricks lined a 
shot which carromed off the 
umpire into centerfleld to load 
the bases once again. The Clare- 
mont pitcher Jim Bell then pro- 
ceeded to strike out the next 
CLC batter to end the Inning. 
CLC wraps it up 

In the eighth the KIngsmen 
wrapped up the game as Dave 
Llnd reached first on an error, 
went to second on a passed ball 
and scored when Thompson hit

right field which took one bounce 
and went over the screen for

Lettermen's Club Under Fire 

By Paul Kilbert 

Chi Alpha Sigma, better known as the Lettermen's 
Club, has been under fire from many people for various 
reasons since its inception in the spring of 1961. 

Arguments in the past have stemmed from concessions 
to blazers. The club has been called "money mongrels" 
and "do-nothings." 

Last March, however, Chi Alpha Sigma entered a new 
realm, the realm of discrimination. In fact, this is the first 
time any CLC organization has been caught in the contro- 
versy which has swept the nation. 

Chi Alpha Sigma had planned a Minstrel Show, the 
second in CLC's history. Originator and director Bill Ewing 
had put in many painstaking hours of work in preparation 
for the big two-day event. The end-men were polishing their 
routines and the chorus was rounding into shape. 

With the show less than two weeks away, everything 
seemed to be running smoothly on schedule. 

Then, like a bolt of lightning, a thought flashed through 
a "concerned" student's head. This show was discrimina- 
tory! It wasinpoor taste "inlightof the national situation!" 
Something must be done! 

And it was. A group of "concerned" students brought 
the idea of canceling the show to the Student Council to 
gain suRort; which it received after a lengthy discussion, 
by a 7-3-4 vote. 

The council's action meant little, however, as the 
cancellation of the show rested with the Chi Alpha Sigma 
members themselves. 

The proposal was brought before the members later in 
that evening. At first there was quite a bit of grumbling. 
But as the roar died down the members began to think logi- 
cally. Cool heads prevailed and it was concluded that 
cancelling the show was better than creating an unhealthy , 
atmosphere. For this reason Chi Alpha Sigma can be 

The representatives of the proposal went away thinking 
they had won. True they had won a battle, but maybe they 
maybe they weakened their chances of winning the war. 

No matter what our actions may be, no matter what we 
may say. we are always and always discriminating against 
someone. Whether it be a single peffson or a minority group, 
you can't help but offend someone. 

Proponents of this resolution presented it "in light of 

the national situation." This is plain and foolish hog-wash-. 
The national situation had little to do with the proposal. 
Or, then again, maybe it did; maybe the initiates of this 
proposal would have allowed Chi Alpha Sigma to put the 
minstrel show on after the national situation died down??? 

The only legitimate objections these individuals could 
have raised was that the show would depict this ninority 
group as generally pox and uneducated. 

This of course is a valid argument. But then if this 
was the reason, why wasn't it presented before all those 
man hour;, were wasted. The Minstrel Show was on the draw- 
ing boards since last summer and was officially put on the 
calendar early in January. Why the sudden concern? 

The proposal may have been well-intended and vital 
to the growth of the college but I only hope the battle won 
by this hasty, unprepared "concern" for a single minority 
group, of many, does not leave unhealing scars on an 
equally concerned "majority" group.

Kingdom For A Horse 

Well, here we are again, and glad to be back in print. 
Also, want to express thanks for the inquiries as to the fate 
of SCHMOLLF, WORUX Seems there's been a nasty rumor 
floating around that our Las Vegas column was censored — 
actually, it was just crowded out— of two issues! Hated to 
see 1169 golden words enci on the cutting mom flour, but 
c'est la vie. (Actually, Pm planning to mimeo^^aph my L.V. 
masterpiece and hand it out at chapel some morning; be pre- 
pared. ) 

Do you recall when 1 mentioned my Riding class, in an 
earlier column? Well. 1 didn't drop the class. Unfortunately. 
Do you know what that Mr. WylJe does? (Mr. Wylie is our 
genial, soft-spoken instructor) Every Tuesday afternoon, he 
starts out the class wrong— he tells me to get on the horse. 
And right then. 1 know it's gonna lie a bad day. "Mr. Wylie. 
I can't." "Why sure you can— it's easy!" Last time somebody 
said that to me, I tried to shoot the Manhattan pier during a 
slight storm, the first time I'd ever been on a surllxund. 
Hello, pilings. 

Next, he cheerfully tells us to jog up to "about that 
first telephone pole." I get to the telephone pole, and niaylie 
the horse was jogging. I'll never know. I'm busy praying all 
the way. Then, he gives the command for us to "Swing 'em 
out in a nice, easy canter. Slow and easy." I'm perfectly 
willing to do exactly what he says, especially the slow part, 
but he forgets to make it clear to the animal, and the animal 
is a cross between Seabiscuit and a jack-hammer. Result: 
a great deal of friction on my base of support, and a sudden 
realization of what Terror is. 

By this time, we're out on the trail, and this is where 
the real excitement begins. We alternate gaits, practicing our 
jogging and cantering and walking (the horse— we never walk; 
if you fall off, you get right back on. Fiendish custom). And 
we go up 'inclines' and down 'inclines-' What he calls an 
incline, 1 call a cliff! (Miss Amundsen says they haven't 
lost any students yet, and I sincerely want to believe her.) 
We ride under trees, over crushed rock, grass that pulls the 
animals' heads down like a magnet, and around mountain- 
sides. And, when one has the time and the courage to note 

the view, it is truly beautiful, especially now when the 
Spring wildflowers are out. But you don't notice all that veiy 
often. Mostly, your gaze is rivited on the animal's neck, or 
on Mr. Wylie. wondering what torture the two of them have in 
store for you next. But 1 want to learn to ride, despite eveiy- 
thing. And I just hope that someday Mr. Wylie and I will be 
able to communicate with one another. Right now. there's 
a very definite misunderstanding between us. He keeps in- 
sisting that "Your base of support is what keeps you on the 
horse." When all along 1 know full well that my staying on 
that animal is a definite example of Theophany— the Good 
Lord is holding me there! I'm thinking cf revising the 23rd 
Psalm to read: "The Lord is my Seatbelt, I shall not fall..." 

Editor's Comment 

The presentation of the polifical platforms of the various 
candidates for Associated Student Body officers marks an- 
otlier aspect of increased service to its readers. The plat- 
forms are published in this manner so that students may make 
an intelligent analysis of the attributes of ewh candidate 
and the election issues. In this way it is hoped that voting 
in this election will be on an intellectual, ratlier than an 
emotional level. The test of time has found that this is the 
easiest way to gain efficient, competent leadership.

California Lutheran College are 
not apathetic. Student complaints, 
reactions to issues etc. have 
simply not been brought to the 
attention of thp entire student 
body and they have not been 
effectively channeled through

"Expression in Action!" is the 
presidential campaign theme of 
Stan Kano. The campaign plat- 
form is a development of pro- 
grams of activity designed as 
"expressions" to be put into 
reaction. Three general areas of 
CLC activity form the basic 
platform. They are cultural 
action, social action and acad- 
emic action, 

.Cultural Action 

Cultural action is an "expres. 
slon" of need, a need to 
broaden student's outlook and 
attitudes beyond the campus 
community. It Is a need to in- 
volve oneself in the Issues and 
concerns of humanity — Civil 
rights, mental health and social 

According to the Kano Students' 
Committee, who liave been de- 
veloping the programs, cultural 
action Is based on vision ana 
faith. Through these activities 
one may better understand and 
live with the major problems 
stressed today, and an oppor- 
tunity to act accordingly. 

In the area of civil rights, 
the platform maintains It Is not 
enough to simply get involved. 
It is necessary to clarify one's 
position in the rights* movement, 
to understand why the problem, 
and then plot the action accord- 
ingly. It is also maintained that 
one need not look only to Selma, 
but here at Los Angeles as well.

ent and voluntarily mental health 
program, "expression inaction'*

Regarding the new constitution: 
The constitutional convention is 
proceeding as quickly as pos. 
slble, and I hope that the del- 
egates can present a quality con- 
stitution by the end of the year. 
If the new constitution will not 
require an extended period of 
adjustment that will interfere 
with the progress of efficiency 
in government, I will support 
enactment during the Fall 
semester. If, however. It will 
mean changes which will for 
some time deter rather than 
assist progress, I will support 
the position that the new con- 
stltutlon should go Into effect 
during the following year. The 
interim period would then be 
used for preparation and adjust- 
ment so ttiat a much easier 
transition can Incur without 
sacrificing the strength of the 
Associated Student Body. 

annual opportunity to evaluate 
faculty and courses taken, and 
the establishment of a "Student 
Tutor Program," 

Explaining "Student Tutor," 
the platform asks using students 
with a 3.0 gpa in their major 
fields to "tutor" underclassmen 
in need of academic assistance. 
Similar "tutor" programs allow 
the tutor financial compensation 
or a choice of not taking a final 
in one of his upper division 
major courses. 


The Kano platform maintains 
a need to foster a pronounced 
dialogue between all members 
of the campus communis. Pri- 
mary programs Include a Stu- 
dent-Faculty forum through which 
college problems be discussed 
between both students and faculty. 
Sponsored by student govern- 
ment, the Forum would be an 
"expression** of viewpoints 
which administrative personnel 
may sound out opinions on col- 
lege problems and concerns. 

"Expression In Action" Is the 
culmination of research and

Andersen V.P. Cantidate 

The vice-presidential can- 
didate must consider at least 
two factors: first, his job is 
determined to a large degree 
by the president, and second, 
the proposed change in the 
present student government 
structure will make him the 
head of the legislative func- 
tion of student government. 

Under these conditions. I 

feel that the student govern- 
ment must be receptive to 
new ideas and then ready to 
move forward in an assertive 
manner. The transition and 
formation periods which we 
are about to enter in this 
structural change will be in- 
strumental in defining the fu- 
ture role of the student body 
in this area. Student govern- 

ment at CLC is not hindered 
by a lack of freedom, it is 
hindered by the lack of stud- 
ents using the freedom they al- 
ready have. The problem is not 
that the opportunities do not 
exist, but that the b has been 
no student initiative to seize 
the opportunities. The need 
Is for students to take an in- 
tiative and assume new re-

by Ernest J. Kump Associates, 
architects and planners from 
Palo Alto. California, is di- 
vided into five phases which 
will govern the process of 
building o/er a period of 15 
to 25 years. The first phase 
calls for classroom and lec- 
ture buildings, science labs 
and related offices, faculty 
offices. auditorium-chapel, 
library and resource materials, 
student-faculty center and 
resident halls. Phase I has 
an estimated cost of over 12 
million dollars. 
Dr. Raymond M. Olson, 
President of California Lu- 
theran College, stated that no 
definite date has been set for 
ground breaking. At the pres- 
ent rate of student enrollment 
growth, building may begin in 
three years. During the next 
ten years the enrollment is 
expected to reach 3,600 with 
a total student body not to 

time. Presently, the enroll- 
ment figure stands at 736 with 
a projected fall registration of 
900 or more.

Unusual among new colleges 
in the United States. Califor- 
nia Lutheran College, by spe- 
cific plan, designed Mount- 
clef Village (the present site 
of the campus) to become a 
significant part of the col- 
leges' endowment fund as the 
college moves to the perman- 
ent campus. The present cam- 
pus will revert to a shopping 
center for the college and the 

It is expected that the grow- 
th of California Lutheran Col- 
ege will be gradual and the 
building of the new campus 
a constant process. Capital 
funds for the physical deve- 
lopment of the college will be 
secured from private philan- 
thropic gifts, loans from cor- 
porate and government sources 
for income-producing build- 
ings, direct support from the 
Church, and from other sources.

Washington Seminar For Lutherans 

Washington. D. C. -(NLC>- 
Cherry blossoms in the na- 
tion's capital provided a 
scenic backdrop for the 16th 
annual Washington Seminar 
for Lutheran Students where 
161 collegians and seminar- 
ians viewed at close range 
the Federal government. 

Attending from California 
Lutheran College, was Mr. 
Kenny Burns. 

During the four-day seminar 
the students were given op- 
portunities to observe parts 
of the Federal government in 
operation, discuss national 
and international issues, ex- 
amine responsibilities of 
Christian citizens in a democ- 
racy and appraise the role of 
Christians in public life. 

Sessions were held through- 
out the city in various govern- 
ment offices, the National 
Press Club and in Lutheran 
churches from April 11-14, 
Over 160 students particioated 

in the Washington Seminar 
with about a third of the group

visit the United Nations on 
April 15- 

In a keynote address. Dr. 
Robert E. Van Deusen. Wash- 
ington secretary of the Na- 
tional Lutheran Council's

Wilde's "Importance Of 
Being Earnest" Tonight 

By Tom Salminen 
Entertainment Editor 

Oscar Wilde's most famous 
play "The Importance of Being 
Earnest" will be presented 
for the CLC community under 
the direction of Mr. Robert 
Wehling. The time will be to- 
night and Saturday at 8 p.m. 
and Sunday at 4 p.m. , in the 
Little Theatre. This promises 
to be one of the best and most 
amusing productions yet shown 
on the CLC campus. 

Since the CLC student body 
consists of over 700 students 
and the Little Theatre holds 
under 150 people, it would be 
wise to make plans now! 

In k eeping with the recent 

drive for cultural activities on 
our campus. "The Importance 
of Being Earnest" brings to 
CLC an opportunity for an ev- 
ening of high level fun and 
entertainment which no one 
can readily afford to miss. 

On behalf of the ECHO 
staff, I wish to thank Bob 
Denman. Joan Shipley. Erica 
White. Norm Denison. Chris 
Salminen. and Jim Tschida. 
who will be making "The Im- 
portance of Being Earnest" 
their last college Drkmatic

ECHO News Magazine Coming 

The final issue of the sem- 
ester will be a 48-page news- 
magazine, similar in format 
to the Newsmagazine publi- 
cation of last year. 

Using the best elements of 
last year's magazine as a pro- 
duction guide, a number of new 
items will be incorporated in 
hopes of making this year's 
publication even more suc- 
cessful than last year's. 

One of the items which is 
sure to prove most interesting 
will be an extensive analysis 
of the College Master Plan 
for development. Included in 

this selection of the News- 
magazine will be detailed maps 
and more specific information 
concerning the future of Cali- 
fornia Lutheran College. 

Also of interest will be in- 
formation on faculty and ad- 
ministrative changes and ad- 
ditions for the fall semester, 
a special graduation feature, 
and various aspects of student 
life from prominent student 
leaders on campus. 

The Newsmagazine '65 is 
scheduled for distribution on 
May 24.

National Lutheran Council and

Mr. Burns, the student body 
delegate to the conference was 
suddenly stricken with the 
mumps shortly after his arrival 
in the nation's capital. Due to 
the fact that he was unable to 
attend certain seminar ses- 
sions, his report at this time 
would be incomplete. For this 
reason, a section of the news- 
magazine, dealing with the 
total involvement of the col- 
lege community in off-campus 
events, will be devoted to more 
complete coverage and person- 
al impressions of Mr. Burns 
at this conference.

Student Involvement In Alabama-Observation 

Jerry Radke, a senior pre-med student at California Lutheran 
College, was sent to Montgomery, Alabama by a group of in- 
terested persons on camfiis, not by the college, student body, 
or any other campus organization. He was present at the ral- 
ly preceding the final march to' the CE4>itol seeing sgch celeb- 
rities as Martin Luther King, Ralph Bunche, and entertainers 
ranging from Peter, Paul, and Mary to Sammy Davis. Jr. and 
Harry Belafonte. 

From a muddy field: 

Through country and city 

As the demonstrators met on the muddy field, wet from the 
recent rain. Radke a California State delegation as well as 
representatives from several other states. It appeared that 
there were few citizens from Alabama on the march. There 
seemed no hostility between the marchers and iaw officers, 
and he saw no brutality. 

To the Capitol steps. 

Radke had an opportunity to visit at lenght with whites and 
negroes, casual observers and demonstrators-, citizens of 
the area and those from out of state, the biased and the un- 
biased. He said that people seemed to feel free to talk to 
him knowing that he was not a reporter but an observer. 



No Great Insight Gained" 

"I have gained no great insight into the civil rights prob- 
lem." said Radke (right above) in addressing the student 
body in a special convocation. "I was brought into close 
contact with the situation in Alabama during my trip. Edu- 
cation will play a great part in solving the problems we 
face in civil rights." 

On a visit to Alabama State, Jerry visited with students and 
faculty regarding the strife within their state. The 17,000 
students of the segregated college participated in the march.

Bookstore Closed, But 
Questions Still Remain 


According to some faculty personnel, orders for 
orders for books and some limited supplies cannot be 
processed by the College Bookstore due to reported 
negotiations and discussions being conducted at press 

No one was available at press time for comment 
about the information received by this office. 

A simple check at the bookstore last weekend pro- 
vided a fact of locked doors to patrons. On the door 
was posted a bulletin from Credit Managers Association 
with notification that the establishment was consigned 
to the Association "for the benefit of creditors." 

The Kingsmen Campus Shop is also consigned 
under the same association. 

According to Dr. Raymond Olson, president, further 
discussions are being held with the leasers of the 
bookstore, the Don McCleans, of Northridge, Calif 
Dr. Olson spoke on the question of the bookstore in 
Wednesday Chapel last week. Campus Life publicity 

featured possible management changes in the last is- 
sue of the ECHO. 

Another faculty member was quoted as saying a 
third party is conducting the discussion between the 
McCleans and the College. According to the posted 
letters, the Credit Managers Association may possibly 
be that third party. No information was available on 
that matter at press time. ^^^JM^^

The new proposed consti-

And Save Money 

-River Falls. Wis.-CI.p.)- 
Renting instead of buying 
textbooks is saving students*

Universities well o/e: a mil- 
lion dollars this year, the 
Board of Regents office in 
Madison reports. 
At the State University, stu- 
dents may either rent or buy 
textbooks assigned for their 
courses. Nearly all students 
rent their books at a cost of 
$6 or $8 a semester, rather 
than buy the assigned texts 
at an average cost new of

Everyone recognizes that the 
group to be educated is heterogeneous, 
but they seem to think that in some 
way we can take the school system and 
accommodate it to the different types. 
They fail to realize that the school sys- 
tem itself has a sociological effect. 
That's the one thing they won't discuss. 
Now frankly I'm fed up.

Kempfert Sparkles On Diamond 
Against Claremont And La Verne 

Kingsmen baseballers , 

coming off an impressive 
split with LaVerne, will at- 
tempt to bring their season 
record of 10-11 up to the .500 
mark as they tangle with Bi- 
ola this afternoon on the let- 
ters diamond. 

Butch Kempfert. coming off 
an impressive 5-0 shutout 
over Claremont, pitched anoth- 
er masterful game by besting 
LaVernes All America pitch- 
ing candidate Doyle Lyman 
3-1. while allowing only four 

The verdict was only Ly- 
man's second loss of the year 
against ten wins and La- 
Vernes fifth Loss in 29 games. 

CLC got to Lyman in the 
first inning as catcher Tom 
Prohaska singled and went 
to second on an error in left 
field. Bdb Trevathan then 
singled the freshman catcher 

In the second inning the 
Kingsmen scored what proved 
to be the winning margin as 
Jim Huchthausen dropped a 
bunt down the third base line 
for a hit. Kempfert then at- 
tempted to advance the runner 
with a sacrifice bunt up the 
first base line. The first base- 
man, however, dropped the 
ball and both runners were 
safe. Lynn Thompson then 
smashed a drive over the right 
fielders head for a double. 
Huchthausen scored. but 
Kempfert was thrown out at 
the plate to end the threat 
of any more runs.

In the second game it looked 
as if CLC would sweep the 
pair when the Kingsmen open- 
ed with four runs in the bottom 
of the first inning. 

CLC's onslaught came a- 
bout on an error, a sacrifice, 
a run-scoring single by Bob 
Trevathan and Pete Olson's 
three run round-tripper. 

However. La Verne went 
wild in the top of the third as 
they chased starter Bob Gren- 
der and the first of three re- 
lievers off the mound. 

In the fatal inning, the Le- 
opards smashed nine hits, 
highlighted by Doyle Lyman's 
grand slam, while scoring 
twelve times. 

Mike Gregory pitched the 
Kingsmen out of the inning 
but the damage had been done. 
The closest the Kingsmen 
could get was 12-8 as they 
came up with three runs in the 
bottom of the fourth. 

Pete Olson led the Kings- 
men at the plate with 3-for-3. 
Tomorrow the Kingsmen will 
travel to Pasadena Nazarine 
College to face a tough Pasa- 
dena riine in a double-header 
beginning at 12:00 p.m. 

In the third CLC added an 
insurance run as with two out 
Pete Olsen dcubled to left 
field and came home on a 
single by right fielder Dave 

La Verne's first scoring th- 
reat came in the fourth inning 
as the leadoff batter singled 
and the next batter was safe 
on an error. With runners on 
first and second. Kempfert 
bared down and gdt the side 
out on two infield outs and a 
strike oUt. 

The fifth inning produced 
La Verne's only run as a tri- 
ple, a walk and a double steal 
broke the ice for La Verne. 

After that inning it was 
Kempfert's game as he silen- 
ced the Leopard's bats, with 
superb pitching. 


Kempfert has traded the 
backboards for a baseball 
in becoming one of the out-

season. Kempfert tossed 
two impressive losses in 
the direction of Claremont 
and La Verne.

SCIAC Rejects College 
Membership Bid-Why? 

By Paul Kilbert ECHO Sports Editor 

After a year of hoping and waiting official announce- 
ment has finally come that we have been accepted into the 
SouthernCalifornia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. 

Ever since the intercollegiate program at CLC was for- 
mulated it has been the hope of many that someday we would 
belong to an athletic conference, namely the SCIAC. Many 
hours were spent by Dr. Olson. Dr. Schwich and present 
athletic director Jack Siemens in preparing CLC for con- 
sideration by the SCIAC Faculty Committee. 

The excellent job these men were doing seemed to be 
paying off as throughout the year we had received favorable 
reports from the majority of athletic directors and coaches 
of member institutions. In fact we reached the final stage, 
that being consideration by the member institution pres- 

In discussing the matter of admittance, the President 
decided that it would be best to hold off with admitting 
CLC until we received accreditation for a period of five 
years. This means waiting until 1967 before CLC could 
come up for review. In that year CLC will be considered for 
five-year accreditation by the Western Association of Scfioois 
and Colleges, 

Considering the Presidents' point of view one can eas- 
ily see why they are skeptical in admitting us at this time. 
After all. what is CLC^ 

To us it is a college that will continue to grow and 
flourish for many years to come. But. to the Presidents of 
member institutions it is a college which has been in exist- 
ence a little less than four years with a very young academ- 
ic as well as intercollegiate program. 

At the rate CLC has been moving up the intercollegiate 
competition ranks it is easy to see why these men have de- 
veloped this skepticism. In four short years CLC has advan- 
ced from the depths of competition to a point where we are 
now playing some of the best teams on the west coast. Very 
few colleges can make that statement. 

A few years ago another young college with big ideas 
wanted to become a member of the SCIAC Conference. But 
the faculty committee, as in our case, turned Cal Western 
down because it was still young with no firm academic or 
intercollegiate policy yet established. 

The "look see" policy taken by the committee paid off 
as Cal Western has been continually frowned upon for their 
recruitment and academic policies ever since. 

AUthough the position taken by the committee against 
CLC does have some merit, the way the matter was handled 
was indecorous. Letting us believe that we would be in the 
League by next year and then coming out with a strong re- 
jection which was given to the press before we received any 
official word was not in good taste. One would think that a 
league such as the SCIAC. with a highly regarded reputation, 
could have handled the situation on a higher level of pro- 
ficiency, „ . _. „ 

The rejection won't stop CLC from growing and flour- 
ishing academically as well as athletically. We haven't been 
beaten, just stopped momentarily. 

In 1967 CLC will receive its 5 year accreditation and 
be accepted into the league. As it stands now. the league 
is slowly deteriorating due to a lack of balance in the com- 
petition. Occidental and Whlttier are the only teams which 
have consistently won year after year. The SCIAC is at a 
stagnant point and in order for it to be released from this 
dilemma it will have to receive new blood.

Ex-Guest Speaker Views Minstrel Show 

Being Earnest Important 
In More Ways Than One 

Critics, sharpen your pencils and tongues! CLC is 
about to present another dramatic production. Mr. R.O. 
Wehling is directing "The Importance of Being Earnest" 
this weekend. Can't be too important though, 'cause Norm 
Denison is portraying Ernest. Actually you can expect an- 
other nifty performance from Norm, who swears he learned 
his lines by pasting them to his windshield while truckdri- 
ving during vacation. Ek White should shine in this one: she 
plays "a Gorgon" (Ernest's future mother-in-law). 

-Another big attraction this weekend is the Kingsmen's 
concert Sunday at 4:00 in the CLC Gym. Karsten, Jim, Bryan 
and Bill (Lundring. Bessey, Spafford and Ewing) will be 
giving their last formal concert together. This will be some- 
thing no one should miss) 

Can you believe that this year is almost over'' Seems 
as if it was just a couple of weeks ago when the frosh were 
walking around backwards with beanies. ..It was the Fall 
semester, and with high hopes we embarked' on another year 
of classes:. for example. Esther Hilllla and I took German 
"For fun." Our latest 'fun* assignment was to (I) Translate, 
a lyric German poem, and (2) Write a paper on the poem, in 
German, "using the vocabulary you know. ..a fairly sophis- 
ticated composition." Have you ever tried to write a 'sophi- 
sticated composition' using the vocabulary from a first year 
language class? Thank you Dr. Braendlin. 

We asked, for this final issue, to pick what I thought 
was the highlight this year at CLC. I didn't hesitate: it had 
to be the night we had the lobster in the cafeteria. I could 
not believe my eyes: was relieved when we got back to 
meatloaf and hash— it restored my perspective. 

Many students think that the most annoying aspect of 
the year was the self-appointed standards committee on 
campus. Not content to let the duly assigned authorities 
function alone, they took it upon themselves to be guardians 
of the public morals, or something. We doubt that it is any- 
body's Christion duty to be a tattle-tale. Perhaps a bit more 
more attention should be paid to that time-honored axiom: 

Prize for the most rewarding experience goes to the 
Chapel session "Answers to the Questiais Students are 
Asking." Students went hoping to be enlightened, but were 
rewarded with a whole new spate of questions. 

Nobody is worrying about finals this semester. We're 
all more concerned about whether we can complete all the 
projects that have to be turned in before finals. ..Like term 
papers and 170-some questions for Conservation. But the 
most pressing matter on hand is the pursuit of a decent sun- 
tan with which to begin the summer. Get busy— there are 
only thirty more tanning days until Graduation! 

Editor's Note: Many of you mil recognize Ihe name of the author 
of this letter aB that of the featured speaker of Spiritual Re- 
emphasis Week. The ECHO recognizes that while the issue of 
racial injustice has temporarily passed from our campus, the 
problem still strongly exists in contempnrary society. For this 
reason the following letter is being published.

Dear sir: 

This letter is in regards to 
your letter of April 26. which 
Jim Montgomery gave me earl- 
ier today. First 1 wish to thank 
you for your interest and action 
taken in the form of a letter; 
I wish that the same thing 
could have been said to one. 
just one student on this cam- 
pus. The purpose of this ar- 
ticle was two-fold; first, to 
stimulate the student body to 
kick off its shroud of apathy- 
to create thought, discussion 
and unity through constructive 
action; second, to sketch a 
basic defense for the other 
side of this issue. 

My statement that "The 
majority of the audiences to- 
day do not view the minstrel 
show as a racially discrimin- 
ating situation,*' is not based 
on a poll of five hundred white 
students; it is a fact that re- 
quires no documentation. The 
fact that the negro is offended 
at the portrayal of his people 
in a degraded social status, 

which was nornal for the per- 
iod portrayed by this vehicle 
of Americana, does not make 
the vehicle offensive. Certain- 
ly a minstrel show at CLC 
would not humiliate or abuse 
the negro characters in it. 

In his current civil rights 
action the negro draws atten- 
tion to his past abuses and to 
the fact that he is offended - 
to the abuse in fact - not to 
the portrayal that demonstrates 
that he was abused. 

I find the concept of your 
reference to Nazi comedy of- 
fensive, as you undoubtedly 
intended, but not pertinent. 
Humor in the Minstrel Ameri- 
cana does not derive from the 
agony of man abusing man. 

Perhaps you would have at- 
tempted a civil rights program 
as other Americans have for 
a hundred years without ex- 
posing the negro citizen as 

Sincerely. Tom Salminen

Problem Seen In Lack - 
Of Off-Campus Housing 


Quite some time ago, four 
students moved off campus 
because of the intolerable 
conditions inherent in dorm 
life at CLC, which the powers- 
t hat-be seem unable to cor- 
rect, and because of the ex- 
cessive costs of living incur- 
red by living on campus. The 
school expressed their view 
of off-campus living by ex- 
tending to the students the 
choice of either living off cam- 
pus and quitting school or 
returning to the campus. The 
precedent of off-campus living 
could not be permitted in the 
on-campus-close-knit exp'^r- 
iencewhichCLC is promoting 
This view is fine and in most 
respects quite admirable: not 
just the envisioning of such 
a goal, but also the attempt 
at achieving it. 

BUT it would seem that 
this goal is not going to be 
achieved in a democratic, 
Christian manner. For during 
the last semester a few stu- 
dents have been allowed off 
campus residence in a paid 
apartment - at direct contrast 

to the students who had to 
move back, at considerable 
financial loss, and in con- 
trast to the established rules 
that attend the college goal. 

At first one might think, as 
I did, that the condition ex- 
isted without being known; 
however, this fact has spread 
school-wide as a sort of joke 
on campus double standards. 
To allow this to exist, as it 
has. seems to be two-faced 
and underhanded. 

In conclusion, I feel that 
mature, responsible students 
should be allowed to live off 
campus if they and their par- 
ents so choose. Students have 
demonstrated that under pro- 
conditions, such as above, the 
plan is both workable and 
realistic; the same cannot be 
said for double standards.

The April 1 issue of Mount- 
clef Echo has an article en- 
titled "Minstrel Show Not Of- 
fensive" by Tom Salminen. 
the entertainment editor. In 
this article, he says that"the 
majority of the audiences to- 
day do not view the minstrel 
show as a racially discrimin- 
ating situation." This view 
must be based on a poll of 
500 white students! The ma- 
jority of white audiences nev- 
er did find the minstrel show 
offensive. Let him take a poll 
of 500 Negro students and then 
he can at least make this 
statement based on a survey 
of one-thirty-thousandth of the 
Negro population. 

Of course books should not 
be burned. If there were a Na- 
zi comedy based on the gas- 
sing and incinerating of Jews 
in Germany, it should not be 
burned. Maybe it should be 
presented at CLC under the 
rubric of free speech and all 
that. I would attend such a 
play, and if it were well writ- 
en I would learn from it. I 
would still find it offensive 

The minstrel show does pre- 
sent "a degrading view of the 
Negro citizen." But if you find 
this good entertainment, en- 
joy it.

Homer Talks Back 


I wish to thank Miss Sch- 
molle for her article concern- 
ing my latest (public) triumph, 
namely: winning the title of 
Dope of the Year. However, 
there are several facts which 
I feel need revision. 

As everyone knows, 1 am 
not a freshman, but a junior. 
(See ECHO, Oct. 30. ©64). 
1 can't imagine how this gross 
error could have been made. 
My class standing has never 
been hidden, although it has 
often been ignored. 

Also, I have not gone to 
college for ten years. Miss 
Schmolle evidently confused 
my records with those of Kar- 
sten Lundring. 

No offense Karst. but its 
dog eat dog in this world. 

Speaking of eating dogs, I 
would like to comment on the 
quality of the cafeteria food 
of late. Oh well... perhaps 
some other time. 

I might also add that there 
has never been any doubt in 
my mind that I am Homer Te- 
ethy. I know that as well as 
I know my own name. 

Well, that's all I have to 
say for now. I must get back 
to work at John Russell's 
Used Poster Shop.
